One of my favorite quotes: " They just couldn't believe that somebody would do all that running for no particular reason" ~Forrest Gump
Thank you to everyone who participated in the 5th annual 5k Run/Walk for J.D.R.F. on October 5, 2013!!!! Despite a down pour of warm rain we had 137 participants (97 Runners and 40 Walkers). Our biggest year yet! With such great participants and support from sponsors, police, fireman and great friends and family we were able to raise $3,521.00 this year. I'm excited to announce that this brings us to a total of $12,276.00 in 5 years of hosting for J.D.R.F.
SAVE THE DATE!!!!

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)
