On Sunday, June 29th, Caffe Vita had the opportunity to take part in the Ethan Stowell Restaurants Eat Run Hope 5K, benefitting the Fetal Health Foundation.

With a handful of terrific restaurants serving food and Vita handing out both drip and cold brew, we had a great time eating and talking amongst the crowd at Magnuson Park.

Four members from a few restaurants participated in the Bacon Relay first thing, a head-to-head competition which included slamming a beer, handing off a baton wrapped in raw bacon and promptly sprinting around the building about 300 feet.

Proving to ourselves that we were good at these types of activities, Caffe Vita actually won the race, taking home bragging rights for the next year—and we look forward to defending the title in 2015.

Following the relay, a few hundred participants ran the 5K course along Lake Washington on a perfect, sunny day.

Vita showed that their luck hadn’t run out—no pun intended—as a few of the members who ran the Bacon Relay finished in the top-3 of their age groups, earning medals to wear proudly.

At the conclusion of the 5K, nearly 20 different restaurants served some of the most delicious dishes in Seattle.

With so many delicious options to choose from, it was hard to decide on what we wanted first, but with everything we got to sample being on point, there were definitely second and third helpings being taken advantage of.

The rest of the day included great music and a lot of dancing, so thanks to all those who came out to show their support for the Fetal Health Foundation, we can’t wait to do it again next summer.
