NIGHT MOVE 2017 FINAL RACE - RECAP!
What a great night! We had an amazing turn out and a great course. We had right at 50 participants and every single one brought a level of excitement like no other! If you were new to Night Moves, welcome! If this was your 9th Night Moves, thanks for continuing to be so excited about our run series! Partnering with our friends at Bravas was the perfect way to finish off the season. As a matter of fact, many runners thought our course was the best yet! Running from Bravas, over a foot bridge, through Foster Park, and celebrating the 07' neighborhoods was amazing. Thankfully, the weather held out so we could actually have the event!
We love putting on these events because we care more about building community among a group of like minded folks rather than just organizing events. There were some new faces and we loved meeting you. I hope we can connect and get you involved! Again, this community is like no other and we love you all!
This event would not have been possible without the help of our faithful volunteers and host. Thanks Bravas Burgers for hosting and providing such a great venue. Katie and her crew were so kind to everyone. They even brought back our signature hot dog... the "NeighborLINK"! To our volunteers, you are amazing. We had quite of people who actually live in the 07' come out to volunteer. It is a pretty special thing when the neighborhoods are able to come together like that. We even had whole families help!
This run generated almost $300 that will go directly toward this fall/winters furnace initiative. Thank you everyone that runs and supports these events. Please keep sharing this event with your friends and help us continue to grow as we begin to plan the 2018 season!
We love being able to help our neighbors, and each Night Moves helps a different neighbor with a project beyond their physical and financial ability. Running is fun, cycling is fun, but what really brings us joy is using running and cycling to help our neighbors in need. So, thank you all for participating in Night Moves!
Oh... and cause its nice to mention the really fast people, here were the top times! Great job runners!
