Dayday Wynn (left) and Daniel Houston (right) jostle for the center spot as they partake in a competitive game of tic-tac-toe during the first annual Unity in the Community Family Fun Day hosted at the Run the Race Center on the city’s westside. For more than a year, the center that offers children a safe and fun place to learn and play has been closed due to COVID-19 restrictions but it was finally able to reopen a few weeks ago. Rachel Muha, the founder of the Brian Muha Memorial Foundation/Run the Race Club, said they were excited to be able to bring events back for the community. “We’ve been waiting for this for a long while.” The Unity in the Community Family Fun Day was held on Aug. 1. It was sponsored by Muha’s foundation and Corday’s Golden Heart.
After learning that his far-away throws to take down the bowling pins were not working as planned, 3-year-old Jaxson Dean came up with a new solution for success.
