On the day of the event, we had free parking at the SAP Center courtesy of the walk. You could participate in three different distances for the event: 1-mile, 5k & 10k. We opted for the 5k course since Lonnie had an injured leg, but continued to walk regardless. We hung around the event area, got free Hint waters, KIND bars & other miscellaneous goodies.
See, hear & speak no evil

It was a chilly day, but the sun came out towards the end of our walk. We walked through the Guadalupe River Trail & had volunteers cheering us on the entire way!
We sure do!
At the finish line, high fives were had & then more grabbing of free Hint waters & KIND bars! We were going to wait for the free Togo's sandwiches for lunch, but opted to have a photo with Sammy before heading out to get brunch instead.
Mascot for the SJ Giants: Sammy!
It was a fun event & no pressure whatsoever to keep a certain time/pace. It was great to see everyone out supported a great cause! I'd also like to thank my sponsors that got me to my fundraising goal: Steve & Derrick, Rob & Debby, & Susan! I can't wait to participate in this event next year with hopefully more team members :)
