DescriptionThis Veteran’s Day, November 11th , don’t just remember those who serve and have served, actually do something that shows your appreciation. The 2nd Annual Goose Run held in Pittsburg, Texas is a benefit for people stricken with cancer and to honor our Veterans. The Goose Run Benefit is a benefit started in honor of a close friend and coworker Ricky “Goose” Branum. He was Veteran of The Vietnam War and employed with Pilgrim’s Pride as a truck driver. He was a big time motorcycle enthusiast. The first year’s intent of friends and fellow coworkers was to raise money for Ricky “Goose” Branum. He was diagnosed with lung cancer, so the friends got together and decided the best way to raise money was doing something that Goose and the rest of them enjoyed. What resulted was a fun run of motorcycles across East Texas, and the raffling off of some very nice prizes thanks to the generosity of others. This past July Goose passed away from his cancer but asked his friends to keep the game going to remember him. This time around, all the proceeds from the Goose Benefit go to the American Cancer Society Relay for Life. Live bands will be playing all day, with the special guest being the nationally touring Wes Jeans Band from Marshall, Texas. They will also be raffling off a mini-chopper provided by Dwight’s Biker Dream of New Boston and a utility trailer donated by Big Tex Trailers. There will be horse shoe tournaments, vendors, activities for the kids, and bike games happening all day free to the public. This will all take place at the old football field located behind the elementary and intermediate schools. Your bound to have a good time. Registration for the fun run will be the on Veteran’s Day November 11th between 9a.m. and 11a.m. on Tapp Street next to the police station. Entry fee for the fun run will be $15 per person or $25 per playing couple to be paid at registration. Cash prizes will be given away to 1st, 2nd , 3rd and low hand places. Participants are asked to park on Tapp St. and walk over to the courthouse lawn for the Veteran’s Day program at the Memorial, which begins at 11a.m. The Goose Run will start immediately after the ceremony. Sponsorship for the benefit were given by generous contributors, Strube Enterprises, JR’s Food Mart/Subway in Dangerfield, Pat Pilgrim Farms, Cummings Dirt Contracting, Pittsburg Gym,and Jimmy Nickerson. Last year was a great success and those surrounding the benefit pray this year will be bigger and better. Thanks again for your support and hope to see you there!
