Run for Adela SUCCESS

While the rest of Blue Ion was DOMINATING at Dig South’s Culturama this Saturday, I was out at Sullivan’s Island working at the Run for Adela. It’s only 5K race on the beach at Sullivan’s Island in memory of my fiance’s sister. It’s our 5th year putting on the race and the most successful yet! We had about 750+ registrants for the 5K and 1-Mile Fun Run and an all-around good time. Trust me, it certainly wasn’t all work and no play…I’ll start at the top.

We made sure the volunteers were happy.


We held babies. And hoped no one would make us do any more work.


Shout out to RP and the fam for making it out this year!

What do you do with the money?

With the money we raise, we fund a weekend for teens with cancer through Camp Happy Days. They head on out to Rockville, SC to experience all of Adela’s favorite things – fishing, boating, camping, crabbing, flounder gigging, eco tours/walks, and more s’mores than most can handle. The numbers are still trickling so I’ll keep you updated on the final $$$.
