One of my favorite quotes: " They just couldn't believe that somebody would do all that running for no particular reason" ~Forrest Gump


Welcome to my web page!!!!

Thank you to all who participated in the 7th annual Depot Days 5k Run/Walk on October 3rd, 2015. It was another successful year in raising money for J.D.R.F. We had 115 participants; 39 walkers and 76 runners. I would like to thank all of my sponsors. Whether you're a new sponsor or an old one your amazing support is very valued and appreciated!

I have dreaded this day would come ...where life would get busy enough that I wouldn't be able to put 100% of my efforts into my race! God has directed me to put my energy and efforts into other areas of my life at this point. I'm saddened to announce that Im cancelling the 2016 Depot days 5k. I would like to say that I've had a wonderful time putting this event on for the past 7 years! I've had great support from family, friends, fire dept, city police and many sponsors donating to make a dream come true each year! I've managed to raise $17,907.00 for juvenile diabetes research! Without the support I've received this event wouldn't have happened! I appreciate everyone helping out on race day and all the help leading up to the race! Thanks again to everyone involved! Please use this page as a resource for future races in the surrounding area and let's keep moving forward with promoting health and wellness in our lives :0)

 With such great participants and support from sponsors, police, fireman and great friends and family we were able to raise $3,058.00 this year!!! Im excited to announce that it brings us to a total of $17,907.00 raised for J.D.R.F. in 7 years

The fourth annual Depot Days 5k Run/Walk held on Saturday October 6th, 2012 was another great success! We had another cold and windy race day but that didnt hold back many smiling faces from coming out and supporting health, wellness and J.D.R.F.

The third annual Depot Days 5k Run/Walk on October 1st, 2011 was another great success! Despite cold and windy conditions we had lots of smiling faces! 

The City of Standish approved a new 5k route for 2011 which the participants mentioned was an improvement from the 09 and 2010 route. I'm glad everyone liked the changes :0)

*This event is in conjunction with the Depot Days festival
