The inaugural Husar’s Diamond Dash 5k run/walk, held Sunday, Dec. 6 at Regner Park, raised over $5,100 for Enchantment in the Park.
Santa kicked off the race at sunset with 309 participants dashing through the holiday light display. Runners and walkers of all ages took advantage of the good weather and perfect holiday backdrop.
Participants were asked to bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the Full Shelf Food Pantry, with many people bringing grocery bags full!
Tim Zellmer, 23, from Elm Grove was the overall winner with a time of 15:37.
The fastest female award went to Sue Miller from West Bend with a time of 19:23.
Both winners took home a watch donated by Husar’s House of Fine Diamonds, valued at $500 each.
In addition, custom ornament awards were given out to the top three runners in each age division.
Race Director Amanda DeRuyter said, “We’ve heard nothing but positive reviews. For a first time event, everything went smoothly and Husar’s is excited to help out our community again next year!”
