Hays Free Press June 10, 2015 COMMUNITY Page 3C + Love of Go: Aiming to get people moving again Continued from pg. 1C this was happening, Crosby said she saw things come home from school about buying chocolate and cookie dough to raise money. "I don't want to buy that stuff," she said. "I'd rather someone walk a 3K or 5K." Indeed, several Hays CISD schools now use fun runs as their primary fundraising activity for the year. Not long after she helped with the Negley event, Crosby said Plum Creek resident Brandi Otto was looking for help with Front Porch Days 5K, an annual community celebration and 5K run. One thing led to another and Crosby was suddenly the 5K expert. People started asking her to help with their 5K fundraisers. She eventually decided to use her knowledge and experience to help PHOTO COURTSEY OFHALLEYORTIZ The Ortiz family of Manchaca particpated in the inaugural Rebel Run 5K in Mountain City on May 31. Halley Ortiz (in back with sunglasses) said, "The race was so well organzied and fun." And it raised money for the Hays Rebel Band. others raise money by organizing 5K runs for groups. "But it needed a name attached to it and it had to be safe and family friendlW' Crosby said. For the Love of Go was inspired by her family's commitment to keep going and stay active. "We're not elite athletes," she said. "We were just people trying to get started." Another important aspect of the organiza- tion was to keep prices low enough to attract families to participate. Crosby wrote a grant to get money for things such as traffic cones and signage. "That could cut the entry fee from $25 a person to $10-$15 a person," she said. All while Crosby was forming her ideas and applying for her 501(c) (3) status, she was working full-time for the Texas Department of Transportation. She worked there for 12 years in different divi- sions. But she lost her job last fall. Three days later, she got the letter that her nonprofit sta- tus came through. Not long after that, Hays Hills Baptist Church hired Crosby as its maintenance director, a position she holds today. For the Love of Go is really a passion for Crosby as opposed to a second paycheck She said the by-laws of the nonprofit allow the race director to eam about $100 per race. "I put in about 60 hours of preparation time before each race," she said. Crosby truly does the 5K as a labor of love. She wants to see people commit to getting healthy- or at the very least, getting up and moving. "Just get offthe couch- that's our tag- line," she said.
