Seventy one runners burst joyfully forth onto the course at Schrom Hills Park in Greenbelt as Fun Run 2016 got underway. Collectively they ran more than 106 miles in 30 minutes! Cheered on by enthusiastic parents, the runners needed frequent water refills for relief from the unexpectedly warm sun. Delicious fruit and snacks revived the runners for the sack races, parachute games, and water balloon toss that followed the race. The playground and pavilion were the perfect hang out for parents and children after all the activities were done.
A big thank you to parents who helped plan the event and obtain business sponsors, and were on hand the day of the run to check in the runners, count laps, lead the games, and help with set up and clean up.
Particular thanks go to Pilar Suescum, the event coordinator; to Jason Petty, Molly Brose, and Randall Evans for their pre-event work; and to Eric Rosenthal who did pediatrician-on-call duty. Thanks also to the many families and friends who sponsored runners and supported the event with a donation.
Thank you all!
