What a fantastic start to Father’s Day to see everyone at the Anna’s Wish 5K Run/2.5K Walk this morning! Many thanks to all the participants, volunteers, sponsors and spectators for making this event a great success for the 7th consecutive year!! We were so fortunate that the rain stopped from 7am-10am…I think we can thank Anna for that! 🤩

One of Anna’s favorite places to visit was Black Creek Park in Chili, New York. In fact, this was the last place she visited before we were told that she had relapsed for the second time and her chances of beating the disease were not very high. In the back of our minds, we knew there was a possibility we were going to receive that news, so we enjoyed our time, watching Anna play on the equipment and spending time as a complete family, watching the ducks and feeding pieces of bread to the fish, much to the delight and laughter of Anna and Molly.
It is only fitting that this is the site where this event is hosted. One of Anna’s favorite parts of this park was the ‘secret bridge’ that is located just into the woods near the pond. She was so excited each and every time we went to Black Creek to show us the secret bridge. We now refer to this as “Anna’s Bridge” and the route will cross this bridge twice.

You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself.
