WEST WINFIELD- The Order of Eastern Star teamed up with a running group called Route 20 Road Challenge for a 5K run and walk at the town park in West Winfield.
Money raised helps the Adirondack Vets House in Glens Falls, which is a transitional home for vets.
This is the first year for the event, and organizers said this is just one more way to give back. "We need to honor and help in any way for our vets that keep us free," said Susan Will. She also said there are several vets in the area who are in need. "There are many homeless veterans out there and we just hope to help some," she added.
People who went also received door prizes, and race winners earned red, white and blue petunia's.
