Dataw Island, S.C. -- More than 200 Dataw residents and locals along with their canine companions braved the chilly weather Saturday morning for the “New Year, New You” Resolution Run. The 5K run/walk around beautiful Dataw Island is an all-volunteer event orchestrated by Dataw Island members to benefit LowCountry Habitat for Humanity. Now in its seventh year, the event raised both awareness and money for Habitat. The fundraising resulting from the event has been instrumental in completing the first and second Dataw-sponsored Habitat Houses.
The fun kicked off on Friday afternoon at the Dataw Community Center with various clubs & organizations gathering for a Health Fair, which offered lots of opportunities to get inspired for healthier living – from canine training to an acupuncturist and even free blood pressure and hearing screenings. Attendees were introduced to an array of vendors and clubs to help them get – and stay – inspired for the New Year.
The 5K participants were greeted with energetic cheers from supporters as they neared the finish line. After the race, attendees were treated to refreshments in the gazebo and awards were given out to the top overall finishers.
Congratulations to the race winners!
