The Air Force Sergeant's Association hosted the second annual 5-kilometer color run May 30 as one of the base's fitness month events. More than 50 Airmen and their families came out and participated in the 5k while volunteers showered them with colored powder at specified locations along the course.

"It was a different way to come out and get your cardio workout," said Airman 1st Class Siobhan Lynch, 90th Medical Group administration technician.

Volunteers from around the base planned and organized the whole event, including Senior Airman April Tucay, 90th Medical Operations Squadron dental assistant.

"The volunteering was a little intimidating because most of us had never organized an event like this before," Tucay said. "Everyone seemed to have a great time, even the volunteers."

Tucay said that even though the event went well, she looks forward to an even better run next year.

The month of May focused on one of the four pillars of resiliency, which help keep Airmen well rounded and resilient in-case of hardship. Fun runs such as this are a way for Mighty Ninety Airmen to get outside and exercise together, helping them sustain their physical pillar of resiliency.
