Dear Editor:

Morgan Murri is the gentleman who sponsored the races which culminated in Town Park Saturday. It was a great day because, along with his races, we enjoyed the Chili Cha Cha. Morgan had a vision and he acted on it. Have you read the statistics that 90 percent of the young people’s population do not go outside for recreation, etc.? A shocking number. Morgan established GECKO — Giving Every Child Knowledge of the Outdoors. Young people are guided toward a life of leadership for other young people. Not only that, his races are so well accepted that the participants are from all around the globe. They eat at our restaurants, stay in our accommodations and enjoy other activities. Yea to Morgan for living his dream.
