Another event at Myrick Park is kicking off the holiday
Around 400 people are participating in the Rotary
Club of La Crosse ugly sweater 5-K.
Runners started at Myrick park and will end up at
the Rotary lights at Riverside Park.
Runners are judged on how ugly their Christmas sweaters
are with one person winning a grand prize at the end
of the race.
The money raised from the 5-k goes to benefit women's
health in NICARAGUA.
Organizers say today's snow makes the race special.
I defentiatly think that the snow will make this year's
Hopefully everyone stays safe out there during the
run but I think it makes for a pretty setting.
The money raised will help pay for early diagnosis
and treatment of breast and cervical cancer, the major
killer of women under the age of 50 in Nicaragua.
