“Rain, rain go away…Come again another day!”
Most of us have heard this familiar phrase but we didn’t expect to use it this past May (since it NEVER rains in May!). This year, however, our Fun Run was graced with rain and thunderstorms so it was very wet and stormy. The 10K and the 5K went as planned although the 10K runners were very soggy when they crossed the finish line. Most of the games were able to go on except for when we had to shut down the carnival rides early due to lightening in the area. There was still a pretty good turnout of people who braved the weather, played the games, ate the food, and enjoyed the rides.
The team from Lee University worked for days getting all the signs painted and equipment ready for the event and they did a superb job! All in all, the Fun Run went as well as it could and we are very grateful for the many people who helped and who came out for a day of family fun.
