Today's word on journalism

Monday, September 3, 2007

"I've always been all over the lot in my writing. Except for poetry -- even though they say all the old-time sportswriters use plenty of it. Maybe it's just part of what we do."

--Frank DeFord, 2006

Scores of runners raise money for Child and Family Support Center

April 19, 2007 | Ready, set, run!

People of all ages participated in the Race Against Child Abuse in Wellsville on Saturday to commemorate Child Abuse Prevention Month.

Some of the 175 racers were as young as 2 years old, said Leigh Dean, one of the coordinators for the event.

There were two events that participants could choose from, a one-mile race and a 5K race. Each event had categories ranging from 8 and under to 60 and older. Awards were given to the top three contestants in each category as well as the overall winners for males and females.

All of the proceeds from the race went to support the Child and Family Support Center, which had not finished calculating how much was made as this story was published. Dean said this is the first year that they have held the race, but she hopes to see everyone again next year.
