Even a centenarian will tell you life is short ... so eat dessert first! 

DayStay Adult Day Services is hosting a fun fun/5K where the prizes are guaranteed, but the running is optional.  Race participants will pick-up their decadent dessert and gift bags, then select their own location to work off the calories (and yes, a movie marathon counts).

Every participant will receive a decadent dessert and prize bag.

Additional sweet rewards include cupcakes medals for...

  • Submission of recorded 5k race data (i.e.myfitnesspal app)
  • The team that raises the most money 
  • Individuals that donate $100+
  • Most creative individual race photo (voted on by DayStay participants) 
  • Most creative couple race photo (voted on by DayStay participants) 
  • Most creative team/group race photo (voted on by DayStay participants) 

Race kick-off celebration and packet pick-up will be Saturday, June 26 from 10:00 a.m. - noon.  Special arrangements may be made for other pick-up times.  Out of town runners can receive their goodies by mail for an $3.00 donation.
