Running for Tacos, Kids

A brisk breeze greeted Team NorthBay participants as they readied to run, jog and walk in the third annual Cinco K Run & Taco Fiesta on Saturday, May 6. Many, wearing their “Your Wellness – It's Why We're Here” T-shirts showed up early.

In all, more than 290 NorthBay supporters signed up to participate in the event.

The event was a fundraiser for the Fairfield Police Activities League, and NorthBay Healthcare was the presenting sponsor. In all, more than 710 participants turned out in 2017, an even larger showing than last year, according to race organizers.

Before the event began, the crowd was warmed up with Zumba moves lead by fitness instructors from NorthBay HealthSpring Fitness. Folklorico dancers entertained runners and spectators throughout the morning, and a number of vendors were on hand, as well.

The event started and ended at the Anheuser-Busch Visitors Center, and participants were rewarded with “2017 Finisher” medallions at the finish line as well as tacos and tickets to enjoy a beer garden experience within the Visitors Center.

When all was said and done, the Fairfield Police Activities League received approximately $20,000 to support their programs.
