Local Superheroes Run to Benefit Juvenile Diabetes
Hundreds of 5K race participants gathered July 12th from around the Avon area to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The run/walk, which marks the beginning of the Hendricks County Fair, was well attended, notably by several runners who wore superhero outfits complete with capes and spandex.
Local celebrity and veteran marathon runner Susan Skelton who took part in the 5K said, “I’ve done 55 half marathons, but I’ve never ran in a cape and tights in the summer before.”
The Hendricks County Fair is from July 13 to 19 and is located at 1900 East Main Street in Danville.
