Each participant received an orange 2015 Run Bright shirt for completing the race. The orange shirts were a way of giving something back to all the participants for helping support the cross country team.
There are plenty of shirts left over; so if you're feeling like you missed out on supporting the cross country team, you still have a chance.
"I am going to sell the Run Bright shirts for $12 and anyone who wants to buy one can go to the Raymond high school office if they would like to help support the cross country team," Meade said.
