To Benefit Animal Shelter, 400 Run Fly Creek Roads

To Benefit Animal Shelter,

400 Run Fly Creek Roads

Part of the Ainsley’s Angels of America Oneonta chapter, top photo, Kaitlyn Watson pushes brother Connor at the start of the 5K piece of this morning’s Cider Run, underway at this hour in the roadways around the Fly Creek Cider Mill. With her is the dad of the Oneonta family, Rodney, left. The event is a benefit for the Susquehanna Animal Shelter, and director Stacie Haynes must be pretty convincing: She convinced Darren Marriott, Springfield Center, lower left, to dress in a dog costume as the event’s mascot. Liam Mott, 2, of Westford, lower right, decided to ride his vehicle in the foot-powered competition. Haynes said about 400 runners registered for the 5K and 10K event, not a record but pretty good, and she expects about $10,000 will be raised for the countywide shelter. (Jim Kevliin/AllOTSEGO.com)
