Our FIRST ANNUAL 5K and 1-MILE RUN was a TREMENDOUS SUCCESS that exceeded even our wildest dreams!
A HUGE THANK YOU to EVERYBODY who made it possible!! The Fairfield Police and Explorers were amazing. They made sure everybody was SAFE which was obviously our #1 priority.
Our generous sponsors who helped to make it all happen:
~Authentic Athlete who donated the prizes for our Top Runners as well as other financial support and hosted the "running tent" with Hoka
~Au Pair in America who, in addition to providing financial supported, sponsored the International-Themed Kids Tent co-hosted by Lisa Burger and local au pairs that kept so many kids happy and occupied while their parents and siblings ran the race.
~Taco Loco for being there onsite with their Truck at the Finish Line and providing all the delicious food and refreshments to our runners.
~Sportsplex for providing most of our fabulous raffle prizes.
And to our other sponsors who provided valuable financial support for both the event and our mission:
Broder & Orland
Robik-Glantz Builders, LLC
Fin Japanese Restaurant
And special thanks to:
~Nancy Jo Hauck for stepping in as Race Director for the Day.
~Amy Yazbak for working with Au Pair in America to manage the Kids Tent and recruiting volunteers help take care of the kids
~Cathy Dunsby for managing the door prizes
~Amanda Cepero, Elaine Rojas, Ryan Fedak, Andrew Denicola, and Gabe Weitzman for donating their time and talent to provide music for the entire morning
~Junior Girl Scouts Troop #30448 for handing water out to runners during the 5K (after they all ran the 1-mile themselves!)
~The countless friends and family (they know who they are and so do we :-)) that volunteered their time in the week before and especially the day of the Event (many beginning before sunrise) - without each and every one of them this event would not have been possible...........
And finally, of course, to all the runners who came out.. We had over 500 runners register between both races which was just INCREDIBLE!! Hope to see you all again next year!!
