'Word on the Street': Fun run raises money for Verona library

Posted: Updated:

VERONA (WKOW) -- Kids were outside enjoying summer-like weather on Saturday with a fun run in Verona.

The Cinco de Mayo race started three years ago to raise money for the Verona Public Library endowment fund. There is a 5K and a kids' race. About 50 kids and one T.rex ran the race. 

The theme was "Word on the Street".

"We call this event 'Word on the Street' because we have literary-themed quotes, running quotes, all over town and our volunteers at each turn on the course are also holding signs with quotes," said Stacey Burkart, organizer of the run. 

The event was part of the Verona Cinco de Mayo Festival. Organizers expect to raise $12-thousand for the library.
