The Freeport Branch of Puffer–Sweiven recently sponsored the “Start/Finish” line of “The Mosquito Chase Run” a 5K run that is part of The Great Texas Mosquito Festival. The Festival has been an Annual event in the Brazosport Area for 28 years and money raised from the Festival goes to improve parks, playgrounds, and other public recreational facilities in the Brazosport Area.
This year there were 115 adult runners for the USA Track and Field Certified 5K Race and 30 children for 600-meter run. The Puffer-Sweiven Freeport office assisted with many aspects of the race, including runner registration, official time keeping duties, as well as cheering on the runners as they crossed the finish line. In its capacity, as official “start/finish” line sponsor the Freeport office provided refreshments including drinks and fresh fruit to all race participants along with goodie bags for the children.
