Starlight 5k Night 2012

This past Friday night, Jon and I volunteered at the 3rd Annual Starlight 5k Night!! This was a community 5K that my friends and I sponsored for Weight Watchers members and their families!! There were about 191 people that participated in this 5K and 110 of them were Weight Watchers members!!

We started setting up for this 5K early Friday afternoon. It was so hot, but we were not going to let that stop us from getting everything ready for the Weight Watchers members that were counting on us! Somewhere between 4:30 & 5:00pm it started raining!!  We all did our best to keep things from getting wet. We also had to hold down the gazebos, because the wind started to blow them away! For a while it felt like the rain would never end. It finally stopped and the sun came back out.

Praise the Lord that our 5K was not rained out!

Many of the people who walked in this 5K were so excited to be there, because they had never done anything like this before Friday night!! We had a great time standing on the sidelines and cheering everyone on as they walked!! Almost everyone was able to complete the 5K. What an accomplishment!!

I posted some picture below from this year's Starlight 5k Night.

Jon was my right hand man! I'm so glad that he was able to come and help out with this 5K as well!

Everyone is listening to directions before we got started!!

Everyone had a great time walking!

This is Olivia's 2nd 5K that she has been at and even though we didn't walk it was still fun!
