ApexCare was honored to participate in the 11th Annual Fab 40’s 5k Run/Walk fundraiser benefitting the Alzheimer’s Association, in the beautiful East Lawn Memorial Park in East Sacramento on Saturday, July 28, 2018.
It was a beautiful morning for a run and to support a good cause. The Race registration started at 7 am in the morning with the kid’s ¼ mile walk for ages six and under starting at 8:05 am and the ages seven through ten group walking a ½ mile began at 8:10 am. Finally, the adults came in full spirit with diversity either wearing fun and spirited outfits or just regular running gear or bringing their furry dog friends with them!
The course itself is very scenic and starts at East Lawn Memorial Park and then continues on in the beautiful fabulous 40’s neighborhood between 43rd and M Street before finally returning to East Lawn Park. The race finishes at what happens to be the highest elevation point in the city of Sacramento. Racers received a custom race day t-shirt, enjoyed refreshments post-race and were able to enjoy energizing music, earn awards, random prizes, and received their digital race time. Sponsors had tables full of information about their services and organizations that provided many good resources to the community at large.
The awards ceremony that followed the event had prizes for overall winners and top three finishers in each age division. All kids in the Kids’ Fun Runs received a medal and the first place boy and girl in each race received plaques.
We are proud to be one of the events on the Buzz Oates RunSac Race 5k Series. There is also a Buzz Oates award given out each year in his honor and a special trophy and $100 Amazon gift card is awarded to the person who finishes exactly in the middle of the pack.
