On Friday morning, more than 50 volunteers gathered at Shakepeare's Pizza on 9th Street for the annual Volunteer/Sponsor Breakfast prior to the Mayor's Challenge: Bike, Walk & Wheel Week. Volunteers were treated to made-to-order omelets created under the leadership of the Egg Lady, Jo Manhart.
A special treat was a visit by MU Basketball Coach Mike Anderson; he and his wife are honorary co-chairs for the event. Just goes to show you never know what great things you might be in for when you volunteer!!
Volunteers helped with Saturday's kickoff event at Flat Branch Park and will be helping at breakfast stations throughout Columbia on Friday.
