Run/walk raises funds

The annual Susie Rosier 5K Run/Walk was held Saturday in Barnwell.
The yearly fundraiser benefits the Barnwell County Animal Shelter. Participants ran from Veterans Park around Lake Edgar Brown and back to the park.
After the race, awards were presented to winners in several age groups.
The overall winner was Lari Gooding with a time of 21:15. Carolyn McCarty had the best female time at 24:28. "Joe" Solomons, a Cocker Spaniel, was the first dog to cross the finish line. He and his owner, Bobby Solomons, had a time of 24:21.
A special award was given to Shirley McCollum for her many years of dedication working with the shelter and helping animals find homes. It was called the "One-by-One" award and was presented to McCollum by Shannan Miller.
