Condors staff members Brad Urbani, Matt Friedman, and Ryan Holt walked the 5K trail while Baby Cal greeted everyone at the start and finish lines. Former Condors Community Relations Manager Mikie Barrett who now works for the American Lung Association here in Bakersfield was instrumental in coordinating the event and even got her husband, Condors Assistant Coach Kevin Barrett (pictured) to man the grill – making everyone’s lunches after a long walk in the sun.
