San Pedro Sunday morning: Covering ground for a good cause

Some of the runners and walkers begin to mingle around the starting line for Sunday morning’s Autism Awareness 5K in San Pedro, Belize. That is Miss Rose in a yellow top, already pumped from the 7K run she did earlier to warm up for the 5K walk with me.

This morning was the second annual Autism Awareness 5K Walk/Run in San Pedro.

Rose and I chose the walk option off the menu, out of deference for me being completely out of shape thanks to back-to-back surgeries in the past year or so. So Rose prepared for the 5K by rising early and running a 7K. I prepared by looking for my ancient running shoes, which I searched thoroughly for scorpions, lizards, spiders and other creatures who seek shelter in musty, dark places in the back of closets.

The run/walk began in front of the Sandbar, the hostel/bar/pizza joint in Boca del Rio which seems to be making a habit out of civic generosity. If there is a good deed being done for San Pedro, you’ll likely see the Sandbar’s name attached to it somewhere. Seriously, a bottomless source of good works for the community.

This event was to raise funds for the special needs classes at Ambergris Caye Elementary School. It is the only class of its kind for special needs kids and Sara Jean is the only teacher of her kind on the island. Both are precious resources worth supporting.

I have no idea how successful the run/walk was as a fundraiser, but as a community gathering of San Pedranos and expats I’d call it a whopping success. And you couldn’t have asked for a more gorgeous morning.
