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 following changes were made for the 2012 race per comment cards:
*Long sleeved cotton shirts instead of tech. shirts
*Extension of run awards to first, second and third place in each age group
*Extension of walk awards to top ten male and top ten female overall
I really enjoy the feedback from these comment cards so please take time to fill one out this year's event and put in any requests you may think of.
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!
This event is something I am very passionate about and look forward to hosting for years to come! All proceeds from this event will benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (J.D.R.F.)
We've had great success in the last few years raising money for J.D.R.F.
2009 we had 124 participants (78 Runners and 46 Walkers) and raised $2,609.00
2010 we had 93 participants (57 Runners and 36 Walkers) and raised $1,847.00
2011 we had 121 participants (84 Runners and 37 Walkers) and raised $2,436.00
2012 we had 98 participants (73 Runners and 25 Walkers) and raised $1,863.00
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)
