2019 Race Number 30: Gabriella’s Smile Foundation 5K Cupcake Run

My 30th race of 2019 was the Gabriella’s 5K Cupcake Run on May 18.  This was a fun-run 5K with finisher medals for everyone and awards to the overall male and female.  The event was founded and named for Gabriella Torres who was 5 years old when she was found to have an inoperable brain tumor and died at 6 years old.  She loved cupcakes so the Gabriella’s Smile Foundation was named for her and established to raise funds for pediatric brain cancer research. And, of course, a variety of flavored cupcakes are served to participants after the run.  Please feel free to save/share my event report and photos located at the links below.

2019 Race Number 25, Run To Remember 5K, April 28

My 25th race, and third of the April 27 – 28h weekend, was the Run to Remember 5K, held on Sunday, April 28th at Comanche Park in San Antonio. There was also a 10K.   Also known as “Beards and Beans” this event was started in 2012 by two brothers, Miguel (Beans) and Matt (Beard) as a friendly sibling rivalry to raise funds and awareness about Alzheimer’s.  Whichever brother raises the most, the other brother has to either eat a full plate of beans or shave off his beard. This year closed out the events of Fiesta San Antonio, a 10-day celebration in April raising funds for student scholarships and various other nonprofits.
