STARS SHAPE UP IN FOURTH FLOYD MAYWEATHER RUN
By Shannon Torres Gilman
The Nevada WBC Cares Team was joined by the Nevada Boxing Hall of fame to Run the 5k Mayweather Run for Fitness.
It's to raise awareness for fitness and the need for healthy habits for children. Local Boxers Jessie Vargas ,Boots Adams, Ava Knight, Diego Magdelano, Crystal Morales and Marco Magdelano joined in along with Shannon Torres Gilman ,Chloe Gilman, Haley Morales Michelle Corrales-Lewis, David Levi and Ryan Lewis to compete.
Our team had Crystal Morales winning 1st place in the ladies 5k,boots Adams winning 2nd in the men's and Ryan Lewis winning the 1st place men's 5k. Haley our child competitor won three medals herself in the children's 1k and two activity competitions.
The WBC team enjoyed many of the activities and interacting with the families and kids. Many of our teammates brought their children and pets to enjoy the day along with them.
Diego Magdelano was seen running the 5k pushing his newest family member in front of him in a stroller. The event was a huge success with three Charities benefiting from over 10,000 dollars in donations.
I would really like to thank the people that gave their time to us for this event and gave 100 percent to the children, playing football and sharing stories and just being there to show them WBC Cares about kids. - Shanon
