Video Story: Sister 2 Sister 5K Run/Walk Sets Participation Record

A record number of people gathered in Colonial Park early on Oct. 6 to run and walk in support of an organization that supports women going through breast cancer.

The 524 people who registered in the annual Sister 2 Sister 5k Walk/Run was a huge jump from last year’s total of about 300, said Dorothy Reed, the founder of Sister 2 Sister, based on Hamilton Street.

The morning began with a spirited warm-up session for the runners and walkers. There were also a number of vendors at the event.

Participants were cheered on by members of the Franklin Middle School football team, and there was an appearance by the Franklin Township Police Department’s “pink car,” which the runners and walkers were invited to sign.

The Franklin Reporter & Advocate live streamed the event:
