We are so incredibly appreciative & thankful for another successful event on April 9, 2016! Words can not express our gratitude to all who came out to support us in our cause (and in the most horrific race weather we’ve had in 14 years!).

To the runners & walkers: we THANK YOU for braving the elements, lacing up your shoes and still getting out there to run or walk; also to those of you who just came out to register to show your support. You believe in us and our cause year after year. Without you, there would not be a “sprint.”

To the children who ran & their parents: we THANK YOU! Without you, we might forget the pure joy a child experiences when they run; and we’d miss the happiness of watching them cross the finish line!

To our sponsors: THANK YOU for your continual support. You have believed in us from the very start, and stand beside us year after year. Without you, we could not continue. Especially this year, when our participant base was so drastically cut by the weather – because of you we are still able to donate to the Society and other charitable organizations we support throughout the year.

To our volunteers: we know it gets crazy the day of the race – and this year was by far the craziest! But you all braved the terrible weather to keep us afloat once again, so THANK YOU for your relentless dedication, year after year; this event is so much better because of your efforts. Without you, the Sprint would not be what it is today!

To our Survivors, those dealing with cancer and those who have lost their fight: WE, (all the mentioned above) DO THIS FOR YOU! May God Bless You and keep you in his loving care.

Our sincerest gratitude & appreciation, the Ship Bottom Sprint for Life crew
