Kornerstone to support local teens with 5K Run/Walk

Wednesday, September 6, 2017
Last year’s Kornerstone Kares for Kids 5K Run/Walk race, an annual event that helps raise funds to support new teen parents, had a great turnout of community support. Registrations are currently being accepted for this year’s race, which will be held on Saturday, Sept. 9 at the Cassville Aquatic Center. Registration is $25, and if received by Sept. 5, includes a free T-shirt. Pictured in photos are last year’s winners with their families after the race. Contributed photo
