5K Recap by Steve Lindsay
A sudden chill in the morning air was just enough to leave frost on the new spring grass. Cold reminders of this past year’s mild winter brought many first-time and full-time runners and walkers to downtown Fowlerville on the first Saturday of May. In addition, Genesis House hosted their first ever 5K Walk/Run on May 6th with an impressive turnout of close to 100 people sweating it out on a 3.1 mile course. Proud volunteers from Genesis House made up of supportive members and staff took care of everything on a productive and professional level. No stone was left unturned from the registration tables to the large digital timer keeping track of runners and walkers crossing the finish line. From Grand Avenue to Grand River, the route offered a number of spots through Fowlerville Park including the roundabout near the Family Impact Center. Along the way, a few water stations were available and ready to serve the sprinters and speed walkers on their journeys. Also, Genesis House remained true to their clubhouse colors with their vibrant 5K t-shirts, too. When the sun poured from the sky, runners and walkers alike were prepared physically and mentally for the long haul with their number bibs pinned to their active wear. Plus, a large tent was provided by A-1 Rental of Howell for volunteers working the registration tables and for others finding a little shade. When the event was complete, Genesis House earned $3,380 in total donations with 95 individuals running or walking the 5K. Coming off the successful spaghetti fundraiser back in March, there’s no stopping the momentum. So far, every move has been a positive step in the right direction for Genesis House in 2017.
