It’s hard to believe this was the 40th anniversary of the Machine Solutions Run & Walk for Kids. I’ve been photographing this race for a number of years now and I hadn’t realized how old this race was. I had to actually ask Race Director, Heather Ainardi to clarify when I heard ’40 years.’
As far as race conditions were concerned, you couldn’t have asked for better weather. It was cool but not cold and no threat of rain. It was amazing weather for a race.
And as far as beneficiaries are concerned, you couldn’t have asked for a better recipient – Northern Arizona Healthcare’s Children’s Health Center at Flagstaff Medical Center. The kids that came across the finish line where nothing short of inspirational.
Thank you to the NAH Foundation and their hard-working crew of volunteers for all the work the did behind the scenes to make this race such a success.
