Over 1,200 Braved the Rain In Support of Southlake Hospital, for the 2016 Run or Walk for Southlake – Presented by Nature’s Emporium!
On Sunday, May 1 over 1,200 participants braved the morning showers to lace up in support of Southlake Hospital at the 2016 Run or Walk for Southlake, presented by Nature’s Emporium.
Despite less than ideal conditions – chilly and wet – the community was out in full force for the 10k, 5k and 2.5k run/walk. It was a remarkable demonstration of community spirit, and we were proud to be a part of it.
A Demonstration of Team Spirit!
Team Nature’s had a big presence at the event, with many taking part in the run itself. Others helped manage the Nature’s booths – which included a refreshment zone serving fresh organic bananas and recovery drinks for those reaching the finish line!
A special thanks goes out to our vendor partners for their participation, including: Kaizen, Vega, Marsham International (who provided nourishing Clif Bars), Ener C, Manitoba Harvest, Goddess Garden Sunscreen, Amplify Snacks, Connect Brand Management (for their hydrating ‘02 Water’) as well as AnneMarie Million from Cardinal Golf Club, who graciously donated her time and equipment to keep our soup station hot and ready for all!
