Runners and walkers wait for the start of Run 4 Independence 5K and 10K race.
This year the Run was dedicated to our organization's co-founder, Bob Fossgreen.
KCRA covered our Run on their morning news. Here is a link to the coverage.
The start of the race was exciting, with all of the runners and walkers making their way through our beautiful Elk Grove Regional Park. While I waited for the runners to circle the course, I met up with a few notable supporters of Elk Grove Food Bank Services.
|Board Member Mike Retzlaff and Assembly Member Dr. Richard Pan|
|Sheri, Chick-fil-A cow, Shania and Harley (the dog)|
I went back to the finish line to try to catch some of our Board and staff who were participating in the Run.
|Deb finished strong|
|Hailey, Evelyn and Braden|
|Gym Bratz: Sherrie Prettyman, Deb Luck, Pam Thompson, Victoria Johnson and daughter|
We thank our community for coming out early this morning to support Elk Grove Food Bank Services.
We truly appreciate the time and effort from our enormous group of volunteers; all have done their part to make this a spectacular annual event!
To our kind sponsors who have stepped forward in support of our Mission and helped us immensely with this Run, our biggest fundraiser of the year: Thank you!
Thanks to all!
