(BEDFORD) – The 2nd Annual Butch Fish 10 Mile Dam Run was held Saturday morning with 24 runners/walkers taking part in this year’s event.
Butch’s wife and Bedford Mayor Sam Craig saw the participants off at the starting line at U Street at the Milwaukee Trail. Participants then headed off towards Williams, Indiana with a scenic trek on the Milwaukee Trail.
The proceeds for the event go towards projects Butch wanted to finish at Murray Park.
This year’s’ attendance was about the same as last year’s with COVID-19 still playing a role in keeping people away from public events.
Throughout Murray Park you can see many reminders of some of the work that Butch Fish had his hands on. Butch will always be remembered as a strong supporter of the Bedford Parks Department as a worker and board member.
