Ready to run!

Richmond Beach's annual Thanksgiving Fun Run was at the Saltwater Park. This year's theme was "under the sea" for the 3.4 mile course. The runners, walkers, joggers, baby strollers, and dogs took off at 8:30am Thanksgiving morning. The RBCA event raises donations and food for Shoreline's Hopelink program.

Three young volunteers working at the fun run were,

One of the more creative costumes for the 'under the sea" fun run was worn by Daryl Hoogerwerf. Daryl was raised in Shoreline and attended Sunset Elementary. He now lives in Hansville.

They set up the course, registered runners/walkers, took donations, directed traffic, and had a good time at the event.

There were hundreds of participants starting off on their run.
