The volunteer crew making it over the finish line :)
This Saturday we got up bright and early to help out with St. Mary's 5k/1k run and walk. It was a lot of fun to see some of the kids that we teach in lab there with their families, tryin to raise money for the school. As volunteers we got to stand on the corners for the little kid run to make sure that they didn't go out into the street. We then moved over and set out some healthy foods for those participating in the event, and of course we had to make sure the runners were hydrated when they finished the race so we handed out water bottles. It reminded me of being home with all the families and teachers coming together as a community to raise money for the school. Everyone got to be a part of something fun, while exercising or cheering on those that they knew in the race.
