As the Adage Dance Studio is one of the sponsors of the event, participants were treated to a very lively zumba warm-up that had everyone ready to dance around the facility when it was over.

Members of the Dragon Divas were on hand to celebrate the day by forming their traditional paddle arch over walkers as they started off on their laps, either running or walking around the track to raise funds for research into a cancer that doesn’t get as much publicity as some other diseases.
