Warming up is important for every runner.

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) – The annual Fab 40’s 5K Run keeps growing year after year. The event, sponsored by East Lawn Memorial Park, saw well over 1,000 runners appear on Saturday morning, July 27th in the perfect weather for a race around the 40’s.

Proceeds from the huge fundraising event go to support the Alzheimer’s Association of Northern California. Families from all over the area come together to support the cause and to honor their loved ones who have passed from the dreaded disease.

This annual event would not be possible without the volunteer support of the entire staff from East Lawn and the dozens of sponsors who help make the day a big success.

The race is managed each year by Rich Hannah and the great team from CapitalRoadRace.com. Big Jim Hall from KHITS 101.5 announces each year, getting 99.9% of the names correct as he announces them as they cross the finish line. It is a total team effort from everyone involved, with the feeling of cooperation, love and support permeating the experience for the participants.
