We had a beautiful - and hot! - day for our 24th Annual 1k Kids fun run and 5k road race.  It certainly was a great day to run down by the beach and jump in the ocean afterwards! This year we hosted a total of 343 runners, with 102 kids in the 1k fun run and 241 runners in the 5k race
 
Congratulations to Quinn Pinkham, the overall boys 1k winner finishing at 3:12, and Evie King, the overall girls 1k winner finishing at 3:29!  In the 5k race, William McGovern crossed the finish line with a time of 17:31, and Maggie McGovern came first in the women's division at 21:56.  Check out pictures from the day on KBIA's facebook page!
 
Thanks to all the volunteers, runners, and spectators for making this such a special and fun day!

Clynk for KBIA
 
 
CLYNK is another way to help preserve our beaches and help KBIA at the same time!  We now have those green bags available at our office for members to pick up, fill with returnables, and redeem them at the Kennebunk Hannaford (or any CLYNK redemption center).  Proceeds from KBIA-tagged bags will benefit our nonprofit organization.
