Community shows support for Kornerstone, teens

Wednesday, September 21, 2016
After a short briefing, runners at the Cassville Aquatic Park prepare to take off Saturday morning for a 5K run/walk event, just seconds before given the green light. Even with rain forecasted, 27 runners showed up to support Kornerstone, a teen advocacy ministry based in Shell Knob. The event was the organization's third 5K. Ozarks Racing Systems, based in Springfield, timed the event, and face painting and snow cones were offered for children, and door prizes for the adults. Julia Kilmer/reporter@cassville-democrat.com
