Special to the Islands’ Weekly

The 33rd annual running of the Lopez Lions Club-sponsored 10 and 5K fun runs and walks, and for the first time a one mile rump where participants could run, walk or crawl if they wished, was blessed, at the last minute by wonderful weather. With all proceeds going back to community causes, we are especially proud of all 365 contestants and the 33.5 volunteer helpers who made the event a smashing success once again!
