There were more than 550 participants, and everyone received a T-Shirt and finisher medal to help celebrate Primary Children’s 90th anniversary.
Any participant that was a former patient of Primary Children’s received a special blue T-shirt. Given all the colors, you could really see just how many lives have been touched by the hospital. Here is what some of the runners said about the race:
“We did this race because I’m a runner, and my kids have always wanted to run a race. So I brought them because it was a family race.”
“It was the first race our family has done together, and we felt we could do it together because it was family oriented. My boys have never run a race before, but you can tell they had a great time. It’s one of the best activities Primary Children’s has ever put on. I hope you do it again.”
“I ran the race because I wanted to be with my daughter, and because I wanted to support Primary Children’s.”
I’ve been training for a 5k for the past 8 weeks — and I did it in 31minutes! I dragged the whole family with me because I didn’t want to do it by myself. It was super fun, and everyone supported me the whole way. We should do it again next year.
We had a blast. The kids made it the whole way.
We hope to organize another race next year and can hopefully accommodate even more participants. Thanks to all who participated, and a very special thanks to these organizations for their support:
