Family Festival Fun Run

This year's Fun Run will benefit the Ben Howes family. Ben Howes, a 39-year-old husband and father of two girls, was diagnosed in November with Stage 4 Malignant Melanoma. He is undergoing treatments that make him too sick to work. There is no cure, but the doctors will try to prolong his life as long as possible. Registration for the June 4 run begins at 5:30 p.m. at Cedar Ridge Elementary School.
