CLAYVILLE – With America’s Greatest Heart Run and Walk just around the corner, the Greater Utica Region is getting into the spirit of promoting cardiovascular health.

The Cardboard Classic Race was held at The Lanterns in Clayville this weekend to raise money for this year’s Heart Run and Walk on behalf of Team Joshman, a local preschooler with a heart defect.

Participants in the event had to build, decorate and race a sled they made entirely out of cardboard, duct tape and glue. All racers paid an entry fee to be donated to this year’s Heart Run and Walk.

If you think making a sled out of cardboard is difficult, you’re right – but one of the top sled makers of the afternoon shared his secret to success.

"You just can't make a snow plow, it needs to be able to go over it and not through it,” said Andrew Mackey. “It's all for a good cause, so no matter what the time or the effort is, it's all towards a good cause so it's worth it."

Awards were given out to the fastest sled, the saddest sled and the best in show.
