Smokin' Butts was a SMOKIN' success!
Smokin’ Butts 5K and Fun Run was a huge success! The weather was perfect, the BBQ from the Darton State Cookers smelled great and the runners and their families were energetic and enthusiastic. Whether the runner was the pro that finished in 19 minutes or the first timer who finished in 46 minutes, everyone had a great time. And, that great time was had in the name of fundraising for scholarships and for much needed funds for the Cross Country team.
This was the 4th annual spring 5K for Darton, but the first time that the alumni association was involved. It was estimated that about 60% of the 137 runners were current students or alumni. Our Board member Cindy McNair and Alumni Coordinator, Lisa Malinowski, were able to update their information, give out goodies, and let them know of the association’s goal of raising money for scholarships. It was a beautiful day for the run and a successful one for the alumni association, Darton and scholarships.
