It’s 8:00 AM and the bright Summer sun is shining down on the mighty King Neptune Statue on 31st Street with a perfect calm Atlantic Ocean backdrop. Over 135 runners both local and visiting from areas all over the country, including a family from Quebec, have gathered at the Virginia Beach Summer 5K Series start line and are ready to take off down the Virginia Beach boardwalk. The finish line awaits them with a medal, beach towel, ice cold clothes to cool down and bananas and water. This week our 5K series helped put a squeeze on childhood cancer by donating a portion of the proceeds from this weeks’ registrations to the Anthem LemonAid stand to help raise money to support kids fighting cancer at CHKD. Join us next week, on July 27th where we have partnered with the LivON Foundation whose mission is to educate and promote awareness for early detection of Colon Cancer for those 50 years of age and under.
