It was a chilly morning, cold, wet and flakes of snow scattered in the rain but, that didn't stop these avid Ugly Sweater Runners! Thirty four participants showed up on Dec 15th, 2012, to show off that ugly sweater they've been hiding in their closet since the 1980's and they were proud to wear them! They showed up with smiles on their faces, eager to participate in the 1mile or 5k walk/run event and help support The Vina Moses Center. Fitness By Emily raised over $300.00 that day to help support The Vina Moses Center, and it wouldn't have been possible without the help of the volunteers and participants. This event not only brought the Corvallis and Philomath community together, but they also contributed funding to help families have a have a delightful Christmas this year. It was a joyful day, and for the second Fitness By Emily annual event, it was a major success! With that said, I'd like to give a special Thank You to my volunteers who not only braved the cold, wet and windy weather, but they showed up with a smile on their face, were eager to help and worked hard to provide a smooth and successful event. Special Thanks to: Andrea Uribe, Shannon Robinson, Will Hollings, Mark Jederlinich, Kathy Jederlinich, Cynthia Cruz, Julie Hardenburger, Barbara Gast and Pattee Empy.
Another special Thank You to the participants! This event wouldn't been successful without you! Thank you so much for your participation, creativity and ability to donate funds to The Vina Moses Center! You're awesome!
Thank you to Five Star Sports donating racing bibs, without your contribution, this run wouldn't have looked like an official event!
Thank You to the Corvallis Gazette Times for advertisement and taking time to join in on the fun by taking pictures of the runners and writing an article for the News Paper! Fitness By Emily greatly appreciates it!
