What a great 5K! Thanks everyone! – Recap

Here’s the letter Melissa Morrow wrote to the Picayune:

Friday night April 11th was a beautiful evening for the Life is Good in the Wood 5k.  The fun run and picnic in the park had over 350 participants.  Great thanks to the Rollingwood Women’s Club and Rollingwood neighborhood volunteers for helping with the event. The proceeds from the 5k go toward improving Rollingwood’s parks and public spaces. Peter Huff was the overall winner and Cassidy Beard was the female winner.  Special thanks to our top sponsors Amy Rung and Catherine Hanrahan with Wilson Goldrick Realtors, Frost, and The Rowing Dock.  We enjoyed burgers from P. Terry’s, Italian Ice from Rita’s, and music from Tanya Winch.  For kids and grownups alike there were goodie bags from Trader Joe’s, massages from The Zen Den, hula hoops, a Snapology lego building area, cotton candy, face painting, a clown who shaped balloons, and a bouncy house.  Big thanks also to the Rollingwood City Staff, Police Department, and Westlake Fire Department for their role in making it a safe and fun event for all!

See you next year!
