Johnston Health 5k run to raise money for the Angel Fund and the Healthy Kids Fund:
The event raised more than $20,000 for the Angel Fund and the Healthy Kids program. Alison Drain, director of the Johnston Health Foundation, says the event is becoming a popular healthful team-building activity for local businesses and a way to highlight and raise awareness about the work and mission of the foundation. The Angel Fund assists cancer patients with needs related to their illness, and the Healthy Kids program teaches healthful nutrition and exercise habits to children who are at-risk for poor health. Some of those children walked and ran in the event on Saturday.
