On behalf of Carolina Cups, I would like to thank all of the participants, sponsors and volunteers who supported the second annual LoCo Motion three-day breast cancer walk and run.
First and foremost, our ad hoc event committee members deserve special recognition for their tireless efforts and dedication. Without them, LoCo Motion would never have been brought to life. Thank you Terry Bergeron, Julie O'Donnell, Mindi Meyaard, Jannie Bielan, Heather Rath, Jill Jauch and Cindy Ulmer.
We are incredibly grateful for the support of our major sponsors -- Beaufort Memorial Hospital, Callawassie Island, Hilton Head Volkswagen, the Omni Oceanfront Resort, Athena Water, the Beach Market, the Lunch Lady, the SERG Restaurant Group, LoCo Boot Camp and Deas Guyz -- as well as our incredibly generous and supportive media partners that include The Island Packet and The Beaufort Gazette, as well as WTOC-TV, Adventure Radio Group, Hilton Head Monthly, Bluffton Today and WHHI-TV.
Thank you to our 625 participants, who came from 17 states and trained countless miles to be a part of LoCo Motion and raise money in the fight against breast cancer. We especially honor the 39 survivors who crossed the finish line; they were an inspiration to us all.
The weekend was about fellowship, commitment, survivorship and the celebration of life. If LoCo Motion motivated one person to make an appointment for a mammogram or to start doing self-exams, then all of our blisters were worth it.
