Race Brings Hope to Kids With Cancer
On Sunday, Oct. 20, the Wellington Runner’s Club hosted the ninth annual Horse Country 10-Miler, Sebastian’s 5K Walk/Run and the Middle School Challenge & Kids Fun Run.
The USATF-certified course, which ran through the village’s equestrian and aeronautical communities, had more than 600 participants, who raised $6,000 for the Kids Cancer Foundation.
