Thank You to Everyone for Making the 2009
5K Walk to Save Our Bay a Success!
Thank you to all the energetic runners & walkers who came down to the lake last June for the walkathon! We were lucky to have fantastic weather and we raised over $3,300 to further our efforts to clean up the Bay. This is the one FUNdraising event that we have annually and SAAWA would especially like to thank our fantastic sponsors who made the day possible! Not only did they sponsor the event, but many of them showed up with family and friends to participate and enjoy the day.
Dan LeCours and his Hannaford crew came ready to barbecue and treated everyone to a hot dog lunch after the walk.
Mimmo's Pizzeria not only sponsored the event & donated gift certificates, but Mimmo brought his family and some staff to participate in the event. Running the event, Mimmo was the 1st to arrive at Kill Kare, his wife Kathy bringing up the rear walking with 5 year old Luca and daughter Sofia somewhere in between! Sofia won a cheese pizza (donated by Mimmo's), but generously donated it back to be raffled off to another child. Mimmo promised he'll make sure she gets a cheese pizza!
All the participants had fun trying out the demo bikes from
Supersized Cycles -- and everyone loved the power-assist bike! Kids still had plenty ofenergy to enjoy playing volleyball
after the walk.....
