Great Community - Great Community Spirit

Sweet Water Fund is a local charity organized by several women who are committed to wellness and preventative health for the families in Gigante. 
The Starter's Gun
Today they held the first annual Sweet Water Fund 5K Run. The event started at the "town square" which is where the only road into town intersects with the commercial road that runs parallel to the ocean. The run started at 8 AM to avoid the oppressive mid day heat.
Steve (yellow jersey) off to a quick lead.
Local businesses supported the event and the about fifty runners participated, about half were local townspeople and the other half were gringos.  
Half-way hydration
Louise and I set up a hydration station at about the half way point.

The winner finished the run in just under 18 minutes.
