YMCA of Harrison County Hosts Annual 5K Race

Posted: Updated:
In Harrison County, the YMCA held its 7th annual 5K run throughout the Charles Pointe area of Bridgeport.

More than 100 runners and walkers came out for the event. 

Organizers said this event and others like raise money for the YMCA's "Partner With Youth" Campaign .... And are extremely important to the community.

"The reason that we do this race and several of our other fundraisers for the "Partner With Youth" Campaign is to raise money for youth and family scholarships. It's very near and dear to my heart because I primarily work with youth and families," said Lynne Menendez, program director for the YMCA of Harrison County.

"There's a couple big hills, but you're going to have that in every race almost. It's a good course, I like it," said Keefe Kiser, who was the second-place finisher for the men.

The YMCA awarded those who finished at the top of each age group.
