Shadow Shot Sunday - Walk/Run

L-R: Allegra, Sue, Patti, Rich,Michele, Max, Jim, Wendy - and me, behind the iPhone
Shadow Shot Sunday 2 is back, and my theme goes back to last Saturday to the 5K Walk/Run for The Center for Cancer Care. Since they have been so helpful to Patti in her recovery, she formed a team to participate. Patti thought that shirts would be a fine idea...

We commissioned our artist friend Rich to create a pink shirt our themes (duckies and bunnies maybe?). Allegra models the shirt in the morning mist...The team included my niece Sue who was taken up running and brought her unexcited daughter along in a runner stroller

A unique member of this intrepid team is Ansonia Mayor Jim Della Volpe, the only municipal executive I saw in the 550 participants to take part - I moved along the course via a pair of 24 volt motors :)

To the left, Patti and Rich have just completed the 3.1 mile course...

A fun day was had by all, and the mist dissipated into a nice day, and happier still was that the rain later was well past the event. Runners and walkers exercised, funds were raised for the cancer center wonderful and shadows captured - a nice morning stroll
