EITA 5k Recap

Throwback to last Saturday’s successful 5k race for My New Red Shoes.

At 8:30AM, participants began to show up at RoadRunner Sports in Berkley to pick up their custom bibs. I was really surprised everyone showed up early and on time, no “Filipino Time” stragglers. XD


After a little introduction and speech from Gretchine, who works for My New Red Shoes, the runners took off promptly at 9:30 and ran along the Ohlone Greenway.

Go Chris@empire!!!!

Shout out to the Empire team keeping the energy up every half mile!

Seemed like some runners needed a little more motivation than others.

It wasn’t too long before the runners made their way back to the store front. 3.1 miles looks good on every one of them!

Each participant both in person and virtual received and will receive a finish medal burned by @amakuatreasures with an a red shoelace lanyard (because details are important).

After the race we brought everyone in for snacks and refreshments as well as a raffle. Top prizes included our newly released Empire hat, and two shoe certificates at Road Runner sports! Congrats to our winners!!

Our event concluded with a shopping party which donated 10% of purchases back to our fundraiser!

Special thanks to :
All our runners, both in person and virtual. Because of you, there are a few kids out there who will shed more confidence into the new school year!
