A Better Chance

Runners line up 10:30 AM

About 100 runners and half again as many walkers, a dozen or so dogs, and half again as many baby carriages participated in the 40th annual A Better Chance 5K Fall Foliage race/walk to benefit the program that brings disadvantaged minority youth to live in Amherst and attend Amherst Regional High School. Since the programs inception forty years ago, 120 youths have graduated from ARHS.

Actually the bigger girl on the right is Karen, a 14-year-old Korean friend of the family. She's staying with us for a week so she is kinda like my girl at the moment. Kira was at her Saturday morning Chinese lesson at Dr. Kate's office around the corner when I took this shot but she jumped into the race a little late (pulling a Rosie Ruiz).
