To the Editor:

What a great community Woodstock is.

On Oct. 20, more than 3,000 people gathered to run, walk, cheer and support participants in the Family Health Partnership Clinic’s Care 4 Breast Cancer race at Woodstock North High School.

As a participant for several years now, I was so overwhelmed by the support and generosity of so many at this wonderful event.

The Woodstock Police Department and Fire Department were terrific in keeping the runners and walkers safe, but one of the biggest thanks goes to the residents of the Sonatas and Sweetwater subdivisions, who welcome us into their neighborhoods each year.

We love coming through your neighborhood, and hearing your cheering, encouragement and clapping. Your generosity and support have provided the gift of health to many. It is what makes the community so special.
