Chris Gordan, of New Ulm, and Deb Hulke, of Nicollet, finish the first Strides 4 Souls 5k Fun Walk/Run held Saturday in the Courtland. The event was sponsored by Immanuel Lutheran School, which will celebrate its 150th anniversary on Tuesday. It was also a fundraiser to help the school and provide tuitiion assistance.
The event drew 125 runners from all over the region. Several children, including several from the school, joined their parents on the run.
The school is considering doing the event again next year, possibly with a children's race at the same time.
