Photos from Holiday Run for Kids - December 7th 2008

The Holiday Run for Kids race in Fairfield provides an opportunity for runners to contribute toys to needy children in the area. It has also become a celebration of Doc George Whitney's Birthday. This year he will be turning 90!!! Marty made arrangements with one of Doc's daughters to get the whole family to the race to celebrate with him. Doc has always been a 'fan' favorite at our local races. He has a great sense of humor and always has a slogan or two on his race shirts to make us laugh.

I was not able to run the race due to knee pain, but this gave me the perfect opportunity to take lots of pictures. It had snowed the day before so it was really pretty out with the snow still in the trees.

The Channel 12 news team was also at the race and ran the story on the news that evening and the following morning.
