Participants mingling at the Finish of the Happy Smackah 5k

The inaugural Happy Smackah 5k Fun Run / Walk was held today – and was a resounding success!

Mother Nature did bring an overcast morning.  While rain ultimately never fell, the day was brightened by the spirits of all in attendance.

The Fun Run accommodated a wide range of participants, from experienced runners to casual walkers, and included one bicyclist!

Event participants were greeted, and hearts lifted, from a special appearance by Dan and Karen Cribby.  Dan looked fantastic and appeared at both the Start and Finish of the Fun Run.

While not a timed event, impressive times were turned in.  More than that, all had impressive smiles at the finish.  Once complete, runners enjoyed Evol burritos, bananas, and water from Pepsi Beverages Company.

All-in-all it was simply a wonderful event for those involved: participants, volunteers, and supporters.

The Happy Smackah would like to thank all of our wonderful sponsors for their support to make this event possible.

Finally, we’d like to thank all our participants – including Dan’ friends, family, current and former students, for being there and making this such a special and memorable day!

THANK YOU!
