Viva Cinco K

Running for Kids, Tacos

Team NorthBay members showed up in force, wearing their “Your Wellness—It’s Why We’re Here” T-shirts on a sunny Saturday morning in May to run, jog and walk in the third annual Cinco K Run & Taco Fiesta. As many as 290 NorthBay employees, friends and family members signed up to participate—the largest contingent, according to race organizers. Many were captured in a team photo with the help of a drone.

The event is a fundraiser for the Fairfield Police Activities League, and NorthBay Healthcare was the presenting sponsor. In all, more than 700 participants turned out this year, an increase from the inaugural year, according to race organizers.

Team NorthBay’s fastest runner was Chris Dalton, an IT systems engineer, who finished third overall.

The event started and ended at the Anheuser-Busch Visitors Center and participants were treated to a beer garden experience complete with tacos. When all was said and done, the Fairfield Police Activities League reported receiving $20,000 for its programs.
