No Labels Run @Mira Lagos for Danny Jones Rachel’s Challenge

1st Annual Is A Success

RunTheWalkStartingLine-32

The first annual No Labels No Limits run was a success!  The event brought awareness to anti-bullying, and benefited Danny Jones Rachel’s Challenge. Bringing together families, friends, and even people from out of the state coming to run on behalf of the cause.

We saw people who never thought of running a 5K before all the way up to the experts of running who came out ready to win it all.  With a little over 300 participants, this inaugural event left an impact.

As we set up early that morning, an older woman, who was out for a walk asked what was going on?  After hearing what we were doing, her response was, “It’s great seeing people who would normally be inside on a Saturday out as a family doing something active and for a cause”.

We were able to create a spirit week Leading up to the event, thanks to Principle Moore and his awesome staff at Danny Jones.  Julie Jager, who is a counselor at Danny Jones, really made things happen within the school.  The Friday before the event we had two Pep Rally’s that featured yours truly in the pie-eating contest.  The band played, cheerleaders cheered, and the students all got into the chants and festivities.

Being able to reach our youth with an anti-bullying running event was fun.  We were able to raise a little over $1,400  for Danny Jones’ Rachel’s Challenge.  We have to extend a huge thank you to the following sponsors who helped make this all happen:

Rush Creek Church, Chili’s, The Children’s Courtyard, Broad Street Postal Center, Planet Beach Contempo and Spa Mansfield , First Texas Homes, Corner Café Bakery, Bloomfield Homes, Mooyah Burger, Rally Zone Tees, Mira Lagos Development, Shue Studios, D.J. Shon, Dream Big, Camp Gladiator, Jules with Herbal Life, Mansfield High School Key Club, and The Grand Prairie Air Hogs.

We are more motivated than ever to helping make an impact.  Although the No Labels No Limits Run is only a one-day event, it was a place where we saw people from all walks of life put there labels to the side and come out and share a day together.  Our goals are to make this event better every year, and everyone who supported the cause, either by participating or sponsoring, you helped us make this event a great success!  We look forward to next year!  Thank you for running with us!!
