4th Annual Teal Ribbon 5k Run/Walk

This event is sponsored by Norway Savings Bank to raise funds and awareness for our local Sexual Assault and Prevention Response ServiceIt was a fun and tough (It was WINDY!) group of athletes that came out to traverse the length of Main Street in South Paris, twice.

This was their first time running past me, but these 2 held the lead and placed first for males and females in the running race. They were flying and looked strong!
This event brought out many families...this boy was part of a family of 11 representing all ages that walked together...they were bundled right up against the cold but wearing big smiles! 
These guys were having a blast hanging out & volunteering at the half-way point water stop where they greeted everyone who needed a drink before continuing on to the finish line. They made a lot of athletes very happy!
This dad did a great job of making the journey as much fun as possible for his kiddos since 3.1 miles is quite a ways for the littlest athletes. They completed the course though, and he was so proud of them! 
And, you know me - I have to capture the 4-legged registrants as well. There were 2 in this event and they were both enjoying walking with their families!
