Healthy Glow

funrun1Fun Run Lights the Way for PCMA Runners

Nearly 200 Convening Leaders attendees woke up bright and early yesterday morning for a chance to witness the spectacular sunrise along the Vancouver seawall — and participate in the PCMA  Foundation’s Fun Run/Walk 5K, aka the “glow run.”

Raising more than $20,000 for the Foundation through registration and sponsorship, the Fun Run was a celebration of, well, fun, wellness, and networking, rather than a competition. Every participant had the chance to be a champion, as the names of the race’s “winners” were drawn from the overall pool of runners.

The Fun Run, brought to you by Caesars Entertainment, integrated PCMA’s personal and professional well-being initiatives. Race enthusiasts can anticipate another Fun Run at the 2016 PCMA Education Conference in St. Louis in June.
