Blizzard Run Stories

It was a great family event, all four of my kids ran/walked the 5K. We started as a family and we ended as a family.
— Tara M
Before I lost weight, I wasn’t able to even walk around my neighborhood. Now after I lost 25+ lbs I have kept it off for 3 years and the blizzard run was my second 5k completed. I love doing these walks for a great cause and I hope to do many more. Helping to make a difference or even save someone’s life, there’s nothing like it.
— Breanna D.
The blizzard run was such a fun event and it felt good knowing I was donating to a good cause AND knowing 100% of the proceeds were going to the cause. Thank you for a great run and delicious blizzards at the end. Now that’s worth running for!
— J.B.
The Blizzard Run 5k was an extremely well organized event that I would DEFINITEY run in again!! Being that it was for charity AND there was a DQ Blizzard at the end, there’s no reason not to try it!!
