On February 15, 2014, ASC hosted its Fourth Annual Heart & Sole 5k and Fun Run at Winfrey Point on White Rock Lake. The event was a huge success thanks to our generous sponsors and volunteers! We had over 650 runners participate in the races, and we could not have asked for better weather. The lively and talented Catdaddies got everyone dancing with some post-race tunes, while the bounce house, face painters, and balloon artist entertained the kids! La Madeleine provided a delicious hot breakfast and, to add to the perks, race finishers all enjoyed red ear warmers with the Heart & Sole logo!
Participants also received t-shirts and race bags packed full of giveaways from our wonderful sponsors, including water bottles, koozies, chap stick, and coupons. Overall, it was a fun, family-friendly event that raised more than $23,000 for this year’s beneficiary, FEYW. Thank you to everyone who supported the 2014 Heart & Sole 5k and Fun Run! We hope to see you again next year.
