Finish is a sweet success at Cinnamon Bun Fun Run

Results for the run are posted online and can be accessed from the Cinnamon Bun Fun Run web site at cinnamonbunrun.com.

For the 529 runners and walkers who turned out for the Ladysmith Cinnamon Bun Fun Run Nov. 29, finishing first wasn’t necessarily the best part.

For some the real fun began when they picked up their sticky, sweet cinnamon reward for participating in a fund, food and awareness raiser for the Ladysmith Food Bank.

“The Ladysmith Food Bank was the happy recipient of far more items of food than they received last year. It looks like the five-items of food entry fee turned into eight or ten items, which made us happy,  because the end result was about 4,100 pounds of food to the Ladysmith Food Bank,” said a report on the Fun Run web site.

“Participants also generously unloaded their pockets and placed more than $525 in our donation box. Add to that the money raised through the online registration process and corporate donations, the total tops out at $2,095.”

Results for the run are posted online and can be accessed from the Cinnamon Bun Fun Run web site at cinnamonbunrun.com.
