This past Friday July 3rd the Firecracker 5K was held in Guin, Ala. Despite the rain, about 75 participants showed up event organizer Bobby Bellew said via his Facebook page. Bellew said without the rain perhaps as many as 100 runners would have participated. Most importantly, he said "it appears we will have raised approximately $7,800 for Santa's Workshop. That's awesome!" Bellew said he appreciates the community's support. "And for every ruuner/walker who came out in the rain and stayed with us past midnight, thank you so very much," Bellew said.
