Up and Away 5K

Okay Friends. Time is short. This is the last shot we have to raise funds to bring Lola home. We still have at least $12,000 to come up with before travel, which is in June. As we began to brainstorm for fundraisers we came to a few conclusions. 1. This must be fun. 2. It must have great potential 3. We want to benefit another adoption as well

And so… The idea for the 5k was born. Not just any 5K, but a 5K where families could spend time together, dress like heroes and have a really good time. A 5K where couples and singles and youth could all get silly and take fun pictures while sporting Spider Man outfits. A 5K where you can walk, bike, skip, hop or run. It’s all good and it’s all welcome here.
