On Saturday, April 22nd, the ELGA Wellness Club participated in the 2nd Annual Superhero 5K Run.  Just a few short weeks later we also participated in the 22nd Annual Healing Hands 5K Walk & Run. I had a great time running both of these races. Both races took place on B-E-A-Utiful spring days where the weather wasn’t cold, but not too warm either.

For the Superhero run I was dressed up as Thor, and all I can say is I don’t ever recommend running in costume; but it was fun none the less. During the Healing Hands I walked most of the race with another co-worker and her children. The weather was perfect for the walk, and I was able to take in the sights.  The houses in the College Cultural Neighborhood that we walked through were beautiful, and the course also took along Gilkey Creek. Many of these homes were built by some of Flint’s finest families and offer historical significance and architectural treasures including classic Tudor, Colonial, mid-century modern and storybook cottage. 

Overall, I had a great experience during both of these races all while supporting two great causes! The Superhero Run is the, “race to end child abuse,” and is hosted by Friends of Weiss Child Advocacy Center.  All of the proceeds of this race benefit abused, abandoned and neglected children of Genesee county. The Healing Hands Run is to help benefit the Genesee County Free Medical Clinic. The Clinic helps people who otherwise could not receive the necessary health services they need.  I’m glad to say that I was able to be a part of both of these runs and look forward to more ELGA Wellness Club runs in the coming weeks.
