It was a blustery morning, but the cooler temperatures were perfect for running or walking a fast race and 295 people of all ages and speeds, from CRUMC and from the community, finished the 5K event. Over 160 people ran, walked or hopped the 1 mile Egg-speranza and collected candy filled eggs along the way.
The sun warmed things up in time for more than 120 children to scramble for Easter Eggs and smash Cascarones in the grassy areas at the 17 acres. Breakfast burritos, made in the early morning hours by United Methodist Men, and coffee were enjoyed at the 17 acres while children had their faces painted, played with balloon creations by Daisy the Clown, and visited with the Easter Bunny. The petting zoo, bounce houses and bubble balls were enjoyed by children of all ages!
The overall success of the event could be seen in the eyes of Dr. Nancy Rodriguez Cox as she accepted the check for funds raised as well as in the eyes of our children!
