Thank You, 3K Supporters

Dago Roberto crosses the finish line cheered on by Lely High School cheerleaders.

A tremendous thank-you to everyone who joined us Oct. 12 at our second annual 3K Fun Run, Walk & Roll! We had a wonderful turnout at Cambier Park, with more than 140 participating in the course and more cheering on the sidelines to help encourage inclusion and fitness.

Many thanks to our generous sponsors and underwriters, as well, for supporting this incredibly fun event for individuals of all ages and abilities. It truly was a community affair, with food and refreshments from First Watch; dental and podiatric screenings by Special Olympics; performances by the Lely High School cheerleading team; and more. We are additionally grateful for the organizational support from Gulf Coast Runners and further support from Cherry Hill Tattoo, the Cooney family, DeAngelis Diamond, Naples Pool Service, Paragon Theaters Pavilion Naples and Tori Georgelos. It takes every one of us to go the distance with this event.

Together, we raised more than $6,500 for STARability and helped shine light on ability, not disability, on a community-wide level. We hope to see you all at the event next year!
