FLINT — Over a thousand runners and walkers donned Santa suits and took to the streets of Flint for the 10th Annual YMCA Santa Fun Run last Saturday. The 5k road race led participants on a scenic route into the downtown area and through the University of Michigan-Flint campus, the Flint Cultural Center and the Applewood Estate. Families also gathered before and after the race for photo opportunities and some celebratory snacks. All proceeds from the Santa Run will benefit local YMCA programs. — B.G.
