The Rodelle Vanilla Day 5K Run & Walk

The 3rd Annual Rodelle Vanilla Day 5K happened on Saturday, September 23rd!

We had an incredible time! It was a great morning for a run/walk in celebration of the world's most popular flavor - vanilla!! And, of course, there was extra vanilla in all of our refreshments - from locally brewed vanilla beer to special sweet treats. The fabulous KD & The Painkillers performed some great music before and after the run!

All race proceeds will benefit social programs for communities in the vanilla growing regions of Madagascar through the Rodelle Foundation.

Check back in next summer for next year's event!
