Northern VA Buzz – Sadie’s Smile Foundation 5K Run

May 16th, 2012 by

Northern VA Buzz’ follow up to the first annual Sadie’s Smile Foundation 5K Run. The weather could not have been more perfect! Volunteers started trickling into the downtown area of Purcellville, VA. around 6am for instructions. Most of the early morning activities were volunteers hanging banners, placing parking signs, setting up tables, transporting food, water, and getting the registration area ready for the over 400 runners that had registered. What turned into a few hundred quickly doubled within a week of the event.

As the Leesburg, VA. Keller Williams Realty volunteers gathered to be given parking attendee instructions kids, families and runners started making their way into the event. As the crowd grew the DJ started announcing the events, sponsors, vendors, and race details. Promptly at 8am the kid’s 1K race started. As they jetted from the start line sounds of cow bells filled the air.

After the start of the kids 1K race those running in the 5K started making their way to the 5K starting line. After brief announcements from Sara Ablar, the event creator and coordinator, the DJ gave the “are you ready racers?” command and the count down began….”Five, Four, Three, Two, One….Go, Go, Go!”

The weather could not have been any better and the volunteers worked together to make the first annual Sadie’s Smile Foundation 5K run a huge success.
