The 8th Annual Ole’ 5K took place on
April 30, 2016

Dear Friends:

It has taken me a week to let all the great things that happened at Ole’5k-2016 sink in.
We were blessed with good weather, super music, tasty food, a professional race, and dedicated volunteers.
It was more than a race, it was a celebration of life, friendship, and solidarity with the poor in Oaxaca, Mexico.
To those who were able to attend this year, “Thank You!”.
To those who could not attend, I hope to see you at the fiesta next year.
Plans are already being made for Ole’5K-2017.
Stay updated at
Have a great summer!
