“Race day begins early for me, but seeing the energy and enthusiasm of the participants and volunteers, and knowing the proceeds benefit an organization that helps so many in our local community, makes it all worthwhile,” said Kristy Walz, race director and co-chair of the United Way 5k +10k committee.

For the second consecutive year, the Fleet Feet training team used the United Way 5k + 10k as their goal race for spring training. “We thank Fleet Feet and all of the sponsors, associates, agents and members of the community who participated this year. You are what makes it a successful and fun community event.”
