In the spring of 2011, Taylor Frank, her sister Carly, and siblings Rachael, Michael, and Daniel Paladino were planning a 5K run/walk in honor of their mothers, both of whom had recently succumbed to brain aneurysms. They wanted to hold the event the Saturday before Easter and, according to Taylor Frank, that original plan had it beginning and ending at her home.
"We thought only our friends and family would come," she said.
However, as word spread, more and more people began to register for the event.
"I started getting registrations in like crazy and I was like 'we have to move it to [Benzinger Park.]' So we moved it, and it has just gotten bigger and bigger every single year," Frank said.
