Michael, age 44

"Every year my daughter and I look forward to running in the Dad & Daughter 5K. It's something special just for us. We enjoy doing practice runs in the weeks leading up to the event, and sharing that special feeling of accomplishment when we cross the finish line at the race. And we both love the festivities before and after the race. She looks forward to creating with the markers and glitter, and I enjoy getting free buffalo wings! We also like to wear our matching shirts all year round! It's one of the highlights of our year."

Cece, age 8

"I like all the food there and I like the feeling of crossing the finish line. And I like the shirts!"

Cindy, age 63

"This is my favorite 5k run. I've been a consistent participant for the last 5 years and still participate even though I lost my father a few years ago. I walk in his memory and I feel like it's been a great way to honor the fond memories we made together. I also enjoy seeing the many father/daughter memories in the making when I participate now."

We Hope to see you there.
