Five members of our CAS family participated in the third annual Run for the Way 5K on Saturday morning at North Collier Regional Park in Naples.
At 7:30 a.m., our group of walkers lined up for the 5K. Each of the participants – Jessica Barton, Jan Brown, Logan Curti, Danielle Lynch and Kay Anderson – completed the course in about 56 minutes.
Jessica, who has run several 5K races this year, organized our team and sparked our interest in the Run for the Way.
“It was by far the most fun race of the year…I’m so glad some of my CAS family joined in,” said Jessica. “They say running is not a team sport because you are only in competition with yourself. But we made it a team sport.”
The Run for the Way was Logan’s first 5K.
“We didn’t break any world records for speed, but it was fun to get some exercise and spend an enjoyable morning with the team,” said Logan. “Plus we were supporting a great cause!”
The 5K run and walk benefitted United Way of Collier County, which encompasses more than 30 local community agencies and hundreds of human services programs. These organizations serve more than 100,000 people in Collier County.
After the race, our CAS team went to Sun N Fun Lagoon to cool off and enjoy the rest of the morning under the Florida sun.
