With her father Mike close behind, an exhausted Addison Jager, 7, of Bellingham crosses the finish line during the 3rd annual Everyday Superheroes 5K Run & Walk on Sunday morning Oct. 10, 2015, at Squalicum Creek Park in Bellingham, Wash. Coordinator Michele Medlen of Bellingham says over 200 people registered for the fundraiser. She said about $5 thousand was raised that goes to hospital caregivers and staff in need of financial assistance.
Medlen said the monies raised are a source of financial support for hospital caregivers and employees in times of financial stress due to illness, injury, tragedy or death of a family member.
Medlen added that the goal of the race was to "Have fun and bring out your inner superhero." © Paul Conrad/The Bellingham Herald -
