Fifty runners and walkers toed the starting line at the third annual Care2Run community five-kilometer race Thursday evening at Peninsula Grace Brethren in Soldotna. Half a world away, in poverty-stricken Sudan, the efforts and donations by the runners and race organizers will hopefully be felt.
The African nation has seen its share of turmoil in recent years, but fundraising efforts to help provide relief have been ongoing. Janice Habermann of Soldotna, along with Jenny Olendorff and Susan Pfaffe, have combined to help aid in the effort.
