More than 50 runners and walkers came out to Franklin Heights High School on Oct. 5 to participate in the fourth annual 5K for breast cancer awareness. Event founder and teacher Rhonda Wright said the students, staff and community have raised over $7,000 to benefit the Stefanie Spielman Foundation. Shown here runners and walkers start the race. The route took them around the stadium track and along Demorest and Clime roads.
