Strong support for healthy events in Modesto

October 1, 2013 

On the third weekend of September, our city shined in a healthy way. That weekend there were two fitness events, the Memorial Medical Centers Cancer Awareness Run & Ride and the Peace Officer Memorial 5K Run & Half Marathon.

Thank you to all our volunteers, sponsors, vendors, runners/walkers/cyclists as well as to all those in law enforcement that came out and supported both runs. As the DJ and entertainer for both, I can’t thank the Modesto Police Officers Association enough. Not only did they take care of the barbecue for the Cancer Awareness Run & Ride, but they also did so for the Peace Officer Memorial Run. It was a proud two days of healthy lifestyle living for the city I love and live in. Thank you, Modesto, and thank you to the residents for accommodating and supporting these two special events!
