Tots Trotting for a Cure by Tricia Hernandez

On a beautiful Spring morning, little ones lined up at the start barely able to contain their feet. All it took was my saying "Are you ready to run?" and they took off before any of us expected. It had all of the adults standing by laughing uncontrollably.

That is how the First Annual Tot Trot held on April 10, 2010 started. Almost 40 kids ages two through ten and their families attended the inaugural event. Following the races, everyone gathered to enjoy pizza, bid on fantastic silent auction items and savor the wonderful bake sale goodies.
What began as an idea to gather kids for fun, food and fundraising became a great group effort on the part of the Country Music team. That effort paid off with over $2,000 raised!!! With that kind of incentive, we are all looking forward to an even bigger event next year.
Tricia Hernandez is the Honored Hero for the 2010 Country Music Marathon & 1/2 Marathon TEAM and she spearheaded the inaugural Tot Trot for a Cure in benefit of Team In Training. Thanks Tricia, the entire Country Music Marathon & Half-Marathon team and all of the volunteers and alumni that supported!
