The Recreation Dept kicked off 2011 with the annual New Year's Day 5k Fun Run. Over 800 brave souls showed up in the cold & wet but, just before Councilmember Val Carpenter started the race, the sun broke through the clouds! The rain held off long enough for most of the runners and walkers to complete their final laps.
The Fun Run started during the City's 50th anniversary celebration in 2002 and has stayed free thanks to support from local businesses and volunteers. This year over 40 people volunteered during the fun and five businesses donated cash and goods: De Martini Orchard, Hobee's, IKB, Starbucks and Whole Foods. Thank you one and all!
2011 is going to be a great year in Los Altos!
