More than 160 people took part in the 22nd Chum Run Saturday, June 15, at South Whidbey Community Park.
South Whidbey High School distance runner Michael Cepowski finished first in the 5K race that wound through the forested trails around the park. Joey Key of Bothell placed first among the female runners.
A handful of youngsters also joined the fun, competing in the Fry Run offered after the completion of the 5K.
Proceeds from the Chum Run, which was hosted by the South Whidbey Parks and Recreation District, will go to the Healthy Island Youth Initiative Scholarship Program and the parks and rec department.
The scholarship program provides Island County youth, whose families may find the cost of organized physical activities a barrier to participation, with funds to participate in healthy and active organized events such as sports, dance classes, swim lessons and other programs.
