Many thanks to the runners, walkers, volunteers and well-wishers who came out to Shelby Farms on Sunday, March 24 for our third annual Kick It 5K. In spite of the chill in the wind, there were over 500 participants in attendance, and a huge group of supporters. We were overwhelmed to have 17 teams on the roster this year.
Rabbi Micah Greenstein kicked off the race with a moving tribute and survivor ceremony.
The event was again emceed by Ron Olson, and the musical entertainment was by local favorite Tom, Dick & Harry. Barbecue from Corky's and the high-tech race timing by Start2Finish made the event a huge hit.
Our first ever Silent Auction was tremendously successful, raising over $3,500.
We are deeply grateful to the donors, sponsors and volunteers who made the event possible. We also wish to offer our appreciation to our generous title sponsor, Baptist Memorial Hospital.
