The Read to Your Bunny 5-K Bunny Hop held its inaugural event Saturday, and area residents turned out to participate.
Nearly 100 people, young and old, many wearing bunny hats, came to Riverside School for the run-walk. Former Emporia High student Jackson Perez, now a student at Oklahoma State University, was preparing for his first 5-K.
Emporia High student Kimberly Ragoza was planning to have a good time during the 5-K and support a good cause in the process.
Emporia High student Alyssa Boyer:
Funds will be split between reading programs at Riverside and the Read to Your Bunny program, which has given 3,000 books to parents of children born at Newman Regional Health.
