Join Kim Bach for the Ghostly Gallop 5K

Time for some inspiration! The organizing committee of Hudson Area Library’s Ghostly Gallop 5K will be presenting Verdigris’ Kim Bach with Bib #3 and honor her with the position of “lead walker” at this Sunday’s Ghostly Gallop.

Many of you may recognize Kim’s smile from seeing her at one of her two Verdigris shops in Catskill and Hudson. But, you may not know that she has just returned from a trek halfway across Spain ON FOOT! Continue reading

A Ghostly Gallop 5K Team Challenge

When the first leaves drop from the trees, it’s time to begin training for the Ghostly Gallop 5K, our annual fall fundraiser. This will mark the 17th year of running (and walking) in this community-wide event.

Kylah Campeta, owner of LYF Fitness at 209 Warren Street, is assembling Team Lyf, a team of co-workers, friends and clients, to compete in this year’s Ghostly Gallop. And that’s not all. She’s also issuing a challenge. “I want to reach out to other businesses to create teams, too,” she says. “Maybe they can recruit staff members or relatives to represent their organizations,” she explains. “It’s not just about the race – even though that part is great, it’s also getting a group together to support the Library. The bigger the group, the more fun and the more our Library benefits.” The LYF Team will include about 15 members.

To register a team for the Ghostly Gallop 5K, the GG Walk, or the GG Kids’ 1-mile Fun run, go to www.GhostlyGallop.info.   Continue reading
