A crew of us from Church of the Hills spent the morning at the Nordonia Hills YMCA’s 5k and 1 mile Fun Run. My nephew and I were on water patrol. After our crash course in proper water dispensary etiquette, we manned our appropriate stations at mile markers throughout Nordonia to cheer on the runners and distribute paper cones brimming with ice water. Good experience, yes.
According to cleveland.com’s article and the Y’s Director of Program Operations Ian Roberts, this 5k and Fun Run was to inaugurate the latest name change and escort in a more focused approach to it’s mission. Ian is a nice guy – very down to earth and quite excited about this first annual 5k to support the Y.
A large part of Mark’s successful weight loss is attributed to the gym at the Nordonia Hills YMCA – he’s there nearly 5 days a week, running 3-5 miles – what a man!
This isn’t Church of the Hills first time working alongside the Nordonia Hills YMCA. We’ve had teams working the grounds, helping build their playground, including a ropes course and climbing wall, and now can say we have two of our key leaders on staff! We like the Y. I’m sure this isn’t the last of our adventures with them.
So, want to know what you can do? Go to your local YMCA and see how you can help. They’re nice. They’ll like it. You’ll have fun. The end.
