Soleful Strutters, Soleful Brothers and Soleful Masters were all part of a “Soleful Family” scoring big victories in the Portland to Coast Walk Relay.
Congratulations to the Soleful Brothers who scored first place in the Men’s Walking division; the Soleful Masters who took first place in the Men’s Master Walking division; and the Soleful Strutters who took fifth place in the Women’s Walking division.
The Portland to Coast is the largest walk relay in the world. Over 400 teams, comprised of walkers in groups of 8 to 12 members, participated in the 132 miles course from Oaks Park in Portland to Seaside on the Oregon Coast.
The two day relay was held Aug. 23-24. The event, which takes place along with the accompanying Hood to the Coast relay, raises donations for the American Cancer Society.
