Sarthak Grover was first to cross the finish line—and make it look easy—of the in Campbell on Saturday.
Multi-colored balloons marked the end of a 3K walk/run along the track where the Cupertino High School student participated in the family event.
Sarthak said he learned of the event, which was inspired by First Lady Michelle Obama’s national Let’s Move! Program, on Facebook.
Both avid runners and families participated in the city of Campbell’s efforts to get residents off the couch and outdoors to combat obesity. The city’s Recreation and Community Services Department hosted the event and 175 residents pre-registered for the event, Campbell Recreation Director Cynthia Bojorquez said.
"We got lots of comments about how great the 'I heart Campbell' T-shirts were on everyone and folks wanting to know where to purchase," Bojorquez said of the most commonly heard thing from attendees that morning. The shirts can be purchased at the recreation department's offices in the Campbell Community Center.
Along with the 3K portion of the morning, residents were able to check out first hand all that the Community Center has to offer. Spinning, music and yoga booths offered a chance to try out different venues.
