The race was great. There’s lots of room for improvement but for a first effort we are all very happy. To all of the incredible volunteers, Jeff and I are so, so grateful. And to those who helped set things up ahead of time with the city and the schools and the race route, we couldn’t possibly have done it without you.
We haven’t finished with the tally because Jeff is still working at the music festival but as soon as we have numbers I will post them. We had over sixty runners thanks to all of you wonderful people who signed up to sponsor school kids. And for you generous supporters who sponsored teams of five, it added so much excitement. Unfortunately we couldn’t fill all the teams but next year people will have a better idea of what’s going on.
The whole event was fun and involved the entire community. From the island government to the police department to the Navy that allowed us to run on the runway. We had help from the Red Cross, they sent their ambulance to be on standby. We had runners of all ages from many different countries. For the first year we couldn’t have asked for more.

Congratulations on your fundraiser! I would have done this in a heart beat had I still been in Isla. So happy for your efforts! You guys are doing needed work!

Congratulations on a successful first ‘annual’ fundraiser – would love to be there next year when you do it again!
