GEOMEER’s fourth annual race event–and first ever water run–was a splash! Our fantastic volunteers gathered at the Aspen Gardens Community League Hall early in the morning to fill water balloons and ready the race course.
By 10:15, runners in our first race were on their way! Seventy-three enthusiastic participants registered for our 5K Water Fight Challenge, where they dove into fun team competitions like Water Dodgeballoon. Some mischievous runners even soaked our race marshals along the way.
At 10:30, the second wave of two hundred people set off on our 5K Family Fun Run. When all the runners made it to the finish line, there were tons of celebrations awaiting them, including a barbecue, bouncy castles, slip and slides, performers, yoga sessions, and much more!
We’d like to extend a huge thank-you all of our participants and volunteers. Together we raised over $4,000! These proceeds go towards GEOMEER’s charitable campaigns, such as Helping Hampers and Suit Up, and provide significant support to families in the local community. We truly got this scorching summer off to a thrilling start.
