Save the Manatee Run

Firstborn triumphantly completed the Save the Manatee Virtual 5K in a passionate effort to raise awareness and funding for the gentle giants she adores. #proudmama

As hinted at previously, she did more than just run: Her event included rollerblading, scootering, skate-boarding, biking, kayaking and running. Now she’s saying she wants to do an Ironman. Please enjoy her race video (36 sec, Chariots of Fire accompaniment performed by Center Sister) and a couple snapshots, below.

A great big thanks to Dawna, Christa, Sammy, Courtney & Geoffrey, Papa & Grandma Tina, the Cotton family, Grandpa & Grandma Schafer, and Joe & Sharon for sponsoring her efforts– she successfully met her goal of raising $100 in donations!
