Special Olympics 5K

Runners laced up their tennis shoes and headed over to Roosevelt Park for the Special Olympics five-K.
Participants paid twenty dollars to register for the run.
Afterwards, there were snacks and water available for the participants to enjoy.
The money raised will go towards transportation, food, and hotel costs to attend Special Olympics.
This event helps local athletes like Christy Coughlin, who has participated in Special Olympics for nearly twenty-eight years.
"Four World Games, and one International World Game. So in nineteen ninety-nine, that was my first world game and I was in North Carolina for Volleyball." said Christy Coughlin, Special Olympics Hall of Famer.
Prizes were given to the fastest male, female, and child participants.
