Ship Bottom SPRINT FOR LIFE April 13, 2019
The Vic Pennisi Memorial
5K RUN, 2 MILE FITNESS WALK & KIDZ MINI SPRINT
We are so incredibly appreciative & thankful for another successful event on April 14, 2018! Words cannot express our gratitude to all who came out to support us in our 16th year.
To the runners & walkers: we THANK YOU for braving the relentless wind, lacing up your shoes and getting out there to run or walk. We also thank those of you who came out to cheer your loved ones on; or to drop off a donation. You believe in us year after year. Without you, there would not be a “sprint.”
To the children who “mini sprinted” & their parents: we THANK YOU! Because of you, we get to witness the pure joy children experience when they run; and the priceless look of accomplishment on each of their faces when they cross the finish line.
To our dedicated sponsors: we THANK YOU for your continued support. You have believed in us from the very start, and stand beside us year after year. Without you, we could not be.
To our volunteers: we THANK YOU for braving the craziness of race day and 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 above-mentioned) 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
