The 2nd Annual Windes Busy Season 5k Run/Walk was held on St. Patrick’s Day in sunny downtown Long Beach. Sara Khatib, a member of the Audit Department at Windes, created this event to give people an opportunity to get some exercise during this stressful time. Eighteen Windes employees were joined by 10 guests from Up and Running Again, a local nonprofit organization with a mission to help the homeless and at-risk youth improve their lives by training for, and completing, a halfmarathon. The participants traveled from the corner of Pacific Avenue and Ocean Boulevard to the Long Beach Lifeguards Headquarters and back, covering 3.2 miles. The happy finishers were rewarded with green donuts, chocolate gold coins, green Gatorade, and other St. Patrick’s Day goodies. With the number of participants doubled from last year, this event is quickly becoming a popular Long Beach “busy season” tradition.
