Tara’s 5K Run & Walk
We had a perfect fall day for Tara’s 5K Run & Walk. We want to thank everyone for attending and helping.
We are happy to report that 253 runners and walkers registered for the event, including 35 registering on the event day. Many new enhancements added to the event’s success including the addition of a measured and timed course encouraged runners to participate. Working with Eastside Racing, we were able to provide real-time results as participants crossed the finish line, allowing us to award prizes to the top men and women in six age categories and overall winners. Hanson’s Running provided the prizes, $25 gift cards, to the winners, and all participants received a 5K Medal at the finish line.
Tara’s sister, Alicia Standerfer, and Tara’s children, Ian and Lindsay, spoke at the event opening along with one of our Survivor Speakers, Nicole, and our President & CEO, Dr. Sharman Davenport.
We look forward to seeing everyone again in September 2024!!
