The Wookiees had the most amazing time at the #RememberSharae 5K.
Cabot, Arkansas has such a loving and generous community. The 5K began with just a group of friends who wanted to honor Sharae by doing a run in Sharae’s favorite length (3.1 miles), but as word got out more and more people wanted to join in. And join in they did. Over 600 people checked in on the Facebook event.
So many people, local businesses, and the wonderful members of Faith Baptist Church came out today to support Sharae’s children. A local market provided fruit, one hot dogs, hamburgers, and polish sausages; another water, and the whole community came together to cover the complete cost of t-shirts. The t-shirts were then sold and 100% of all donations go to the trust-fund set up for Sharae’s four kids. You can donate here.
The course was wonderful. We left Faith Baptist and headed southeasterly into a beautiful suburb that had a perfect one mile point one loop! One loop and back to the church was 2 miles and with a second loop a solid 3.1 miles.
The day was perfect for a race. We had 50-60 degrees, partly cloudy, with just a light wind. Bonnie and I kept up a steady pace once the crowd at the start thinned. All and all it was an excellent race experience. I hope that the event will become an annual program.
