Many medals hang on the wall from Sharon’s dozens of road races and for more than a decade, we have enjoyed an active outdoor lifestyle with the kids. It’s of paramount importance that we continue to offer a variety of these opportunities for generations to come and maintain a keen focus upon the safety of our residents and visitors as they take part in all that our region has to offer.”
