It was a beautiful day for a 5K!
Over 200 Runners and Walkers of all ages showed up to support our Willing Warriors and to raise money for SOWW's Bull Run Warrior Retreat. It was a heartwarming sight!
We felt so fortunate to have such great sponsors for our very first event. We were proud to have your names next to ours on our banner. We couldn't have done it without you! Many, many thanks!
Jackie Glenn was our Master of Ceremonies and the Event Coordinator. She had been working towards this day for a long time and all her hard work and planning really paid off. Everyone had a wonderful time supporting a wonderful cause. Cudos to you, Jackie!
Thanks to all of you who turned out to run, walk, stroll and saunter (and dance a little at the end). We are so(ww) grateful! We hope you had a wonderful morning with your fellow 'SOWWers' and we know that our warriors + families would have been touched to see all of you come out on their behalf.
Here are a few pictures that capture the spirit of the day!
We wanted to start with a good example -- always warm up before you run!

Some inspiring generational teamwork!
