May was a busy month for the ELGA Wellness Team!  We started with the Cinco De Mayo Race on May 7th and then ran the Healing Hands Race on May 14th.   The last two weekends the team participated in the Race2Grace and the Burton Memorial Day Run.   These races are both part of the Burton Race Series.  To learn more about the Burton Race Series visit http://www.burtonraceseries.com/ or visit their Facebook page.

Burton Memorial Day Race

On Monday, May 30th the ELGA Wellness Team participated in the Burton Memorial Day Race.  This race is number three in the Burton Race Series.  It was another beautiful (but hot) day.  The purpose of the Memorial Day Race is to commemorate the men and women who died while in military service and support Pack the Truck.  Pack the Truck is a yearly fundraiser that supports the local schools by providing school supplies to disadvantaged children.

The ELGA Wellness Team is such a great experience for the ELGA staff.  We have a great time working together as a team to accomplish our wellness goals while also building great relationships with one another and our community.  I personally appreciate how motivating it is to have a great group of people cheering me on to accomplish my personal running goals.

The next race we will be participating in will be the YMCA’s Scoop De’ Loop on June 16th.¬† The Scoop De’ Loop benefits Diplomat’s Helping Hands Foundation.¬†¬†¬†This race is held¬†downtown Flint which is my favorite place to run!¬† We hope to see you there.

Thank you for checking out my blog post!
