We've had the privilege to work with Amanda Fioretti, race director of The Shine On 5K race coming up in a couple of weeks in Burlington CT. We are keeping an eye on the weather forecast and it looks like that weekend is going to be great for run down the scenic race course. SOMA Movement studio donated over $2700 in gift certificates to the event.
The Shine On 5k is a family centered event with activities and fun for the whole family. The day will include a dj, popcorn and cotton candy machines, a bounce house as well as two different kids runs. At 12:40 there is a 1 mile fun run for kids 13 and under. The USATF certified 5k run and walk begins at 1pm. After the finish of the 5k, there is also a free event, the "Dolphin Dash", a 1/4 mile fun run for kids 8 and under. This will include a bubble finish line. There will be treats for kids and adults alike!
This community event benefits the Karen DuCotey Fund For Kids (operated by The Main Street Community Foundation).

This year, more than $2,000.00 is available for children and families in need.
