Last Saturday's Race Was a Premier Event!

The 2nd Annual GGIA Spring Into Color 5k Dash was a blast! The fact that people will pay money to have pounds and pounds of colored corn starch thrown at them while running just over 3 miles early on a Saturday morning proves the adage of different strokes for different folks. But, smiles were the order of the day last Saturday as over 600 runners gathered in Suwanee to do just that. The crowd included families, over 200 members from Gwinnett Church, kids, parents, grand-kids and grandparents. And there was no shortage of spring colors to help us welcome in the new season. Overall, the day was a great success, no doubt because of the sweat equity of so many of our volunteers and supporters. Lewis Sharp of Premier Growers, the title sponsor of the event, kicked off the day and welcomed the runners just before they dashed from the starting line.
