Today, April 15th was a perfect day for an outside event in Bladenboro. The annual Bunny 5K Fun Run had another great crowd out in support of their event.
Most everyone has been affected, or knows someone that has been affected by cancer. In 2015, Otis Evans started the Bunny Fun Run to raise money for the American Cancer Society in memory of his loved ones affected by cancer.
Otis, a cancer survivor himself, helps raise money each year for the Bladen County Relay 4 Life benefiting the cancer society non-profit with the Bunny Fun Run and hopes to raise even more each year. The event started at the Town Hall in Bladenboro, NC on Saturday, April 15th, 2017 beginning at 9:00 a.m. All types of different age groups participated. Otis had added a leisure Bike Ride this year to which started immediately after the walk awards where announced and distributed.
There were about 80 folks participating in the event according to Otis. Winners of the fun run were as follows:
Men’s category: Holden Srague, Jimmy Tatum and Jonathan Brooks.
Women’s category: Madison High, Denise Singletary
Other category winners were:
Conner Padrick, Eli Locklear, Brian Hardin, Rachel Brooks, Victor Welch and Levy Welch.
The Bladen County Relay For Life will be held at the Elizabethtown Middle School May 12, 2017.
