14th Annual Run/Walk for WeSPARK 5K/10K

It was an AMAZING day at WeSPARK’s Run/Walk 5K/10K at Lake Balboa Park on Sunday, January 28th!  THANK YOU to everyone who made it and participated in its success.  We shared a beautiful sunny morning with over 700 race participants, volunteers, and supporters.  A special THANK YOU to our Event Co-Chairs: Steve Glodney, Sharlene Miyagishima and Arthur Toretzky.  Much appreciation to Mark Walberg for serving as our Master of Ceremonies and to Body Unlimited Fitness for leading the morning Warm-up.  Nancy Allen, Executive Director, inspired us all with her opening remarks on the impact that WeSPARK has made on the community.  Mari Fuentes spoke about our Run/Walk founder the late Anton Maillie and what this event meant to him.  Big shout-out to Caren Ware and the Itz About Time Crew for managing our courses and timing the race participants.  Bravo to all the 5K/10K finishers!

As a result of the driven outreach in your peer-to-peer fundraising, our sponsors and your generosity through volunteering, registering for the race, making donations and participating in the raffle and vendor expo, WeSPARK Cancer Support Center is proud to announce we raised over $172,000.  WOW!!  This could not have been possible without all of you! THANK YOU!
