The Jane Floyd-Hendey Seventh Annual 5K Roll/Run/Walk Celebrating Abilities Race was held on Sunday, April 20, 2008. Everyone, whether they rolled, ran or walked, seemed to enjoy the great weather and each other's company. Total registrants for the 2008 race was 348 participants. Kelsie Kellen was the overall female wheelchair racer with a time of 20:24.15 while David Grassi had the top time for the male wheelchair racers of 17:06.02. Brent Burks was the overall male winner with a time of 17:58.0 and Diana Kamadulski taking the title for the overall female winner with a time of 21:16.8. Way to go, Kelsie, David and Brent and Diana! First, second and third place medals in thirteen different age divisions were also presented.

A special thank you to all participants as well as all of the great volunteers who helped us "celebrate abilities."
