The rain held off for reigning Miss Dixie Gem Peach Mallory Cox allowing the show to go on for her 5K Walk/Run 4 the Kids event on Saturday, April 27th at LA Tech’s Argent Pavilion. A smashing success, the event was well-attended and featured on KTVE News.

The highlight of the event were the lead runners in the race, local residents who participated in last month’s Boston Marathon. The 5K Walk/Run 4 the Kids event was their first foray back into running since the bombing at the Boston Marathon.
