This weekend well over a thousand people came to the Lafarge Quarry to enjoy a beautiful day, go for a run and support the Forsyth County Parks Foundation's work on the Envision a Fit Forsyth Program.  The Boulderdash event was very well organized by the Cumming Forsyth Chamber of Commerce.

Adults and kids alike turned out to run or walk their 1st or 50th 5k.  Thanks so much for all your support and special thanks to some of the top sponsors: Healthcare Association of Forysth County, Lafarge and Northside Hospital!

For complete details of the event see the Forsyth County News article "Crowd Flocks to Quarry Event".
