Participants in the Cardinal Color 5K Run/Walk dawned their capes to support the Necedah Athletic Boosters Club at Lions Park Sept. 9.

Five color stations were set up along the route where participants were splashed with different colors during the superhero themed run.

In addition to the run, a pancake breakfast was held before the run began at 9 a.m. Additional proceeds came from selling white t-shirts for the run and Necedah Cardinal athletic signs. Proceeds will support the Necedah Athletic Boosters Club, as well as to support the long-term goal of obtaining new bleachers at the football and track stadium at Necedah High School.
