FRIENDS OF DES MOINES PARKS hosted FORE! Our Parks Golf Outing and Bike Ride fundraiser June 17. The dual-sport event began with a shotgun start at Waveland Golf Course for those opting to play 18 holes, and then the bike riders kicked off their journey of 18 miles on Des Moines trails. An array of mini games and challenges set throughout the golf course by parks and rec staff kept the plays interesting, and bike stops at Confluence, Captain Roy’s and Parlor fueled the riders. The event raised $54,000. Photographer: Christopher Maharry.
