The 4th Annual Popsicle 5K was a success! Saturday, February 21st cooperated by being a cold, snow covered morning, the perfect setting for a Popsicle Run. None of the one hundred and thirty-seven registered runners were interested in taking the Brain Freeze Challenge, they were cold enough without the popsicles!
Tommy Boyette led the way as the runners started crossing the finish line. Foundation President and CEO Jane Simpson finished her first 5K in thirty-eight minutes and was pleased and excited to help the SURF Board make a difference in Davie County through the run.
A highlight for the runners was entertainment after the run by the Brad Ratledge Band, and the great food provided by Subway and Panera Bread. The soup from Subway was especially appreciated!
Thank you to the many volunteers who helped the morning run smoothly, and to each of the runners who came out.
