Sponsored by Feldman Chevrolet of Lansing, the Inaugural Cinco de Mayo 5k Run/Walk was held Saturday, May 4, 2019. 125 entries took to Lansing’s River Trail starting at Maguire Park. With Race Director Juanita Garcia and Assistant Race Director Ashley Garcia coordinating their second ever 5k, most participants were pleased with the course, the shirt, the shot glasses as swag and the Michigan weather produced no snow! Feldman Chevrolet led by General Manager Joseph Rodriguez added some flavor to the Start/Finish Line by bringing 3 brand new vehicles matching the colors of the Mexican Flag. Several folks were seen taking pictures in front of them. Much thanks to Joseph and his team of 6 participants for believing in us. Melina Lerma added some graphics to give us our Medal Winners Photos. Our volunteers truly made it fun with people of all ages helping to making the run a success including our Wayne State University connection. We had a few hiccups as we didn’t have a photographer aboard. My apologies to all as photos are a must in the “social media” age. If anyone has any photos they would like to add, please send them our way. We hope you will mark your calendars for the 2nd Annual Cafecito Caliente 5k to be held Saturday, September 14, 2019. Swag should include a coffee mug along with some Pan Dulce (Mexican sweet bread).
