It was a freezing morning at Landa Park in New Braunfels, TX. With our toes and fingers numb, we braved the cold to support the Children’s Advocacy Center of Comal County. As the sun began to slowly rise over the park the runners continued to arrive. It was a great joy to see so many familiar faces from camper families to previous staff members. With several of our staff members coming out in their neon green FALL 4 CAMP T-shirt, we were not easily missed.
As the whistle blew, the DCC crew began the 5K with the other 450 runners. Rene Dominguez finished 1st in his age group and Kevin Collins finished 3rd in his. The race provided us the opportunity to not only catch up with staff members, but also talk with families about Deer Creek Camp, sharing our hearts for this incredible place that we call home. Thanks to all who came out to join us for the day!
Deer Creek Camp will be one of the sponsors for the Austin American-Statesman 13th Annual Statesman Junior ‘Dillo Kids Run on March 26. This race will be for kids ages 15 and younger as well as families. Our staff will not be able to participate in the run, but we encourage all our camp families in the Austin area to come out and bring some friends. We will have a table set up and we’d love to see you! For more information contact Chivas in the office and visit http://www.statesman.com/cap10k/junior-dillo/.
