Nearly 70 people participated in the Aug. 5 Color in Motion 5-K Fun Run/Walk to benefit the Hannibal Kids in Motion and Teens in Motion program.

As the runners lined up and began the race, KIM and TIM members sent them off in a cloud of blue and purple.

This third annual Color in Motion race began at the Admiral Coontz Recreation Center and took the runners through the Sodalis Nature Preserve.

Jerry Daniels III and Amie Maguire were honored as the first male and female to finish the race.

Prizes also were presented to the participants with the best 1980s costume.

This contest was won by Kelly and Andrea Huse, dressed from head to toe in colorful ensembles. They called themselves '80s girls.

The largest team was from Hannibal Regional Hospital, with 17 members. The members were not only honored on Saturday, they will be treated to a home-cooked meal at First Presbyterian Church, cooked and served by the KIM participants.

Devin Perry of HomeBank (the main sponsor of the fund-raiser, which donated $1,000) had fun posing as Richard Simmons before joining his HomeBank co-workers for a team photo.

Among the costumed runners were Norma Lucas and Teresa Smith. Smith said she was “chilling my inner Madonna.”

Family groups included Stephanie Wilt and her children, Kyndal, Cael and Madisyn.

As the race continued, KIM Program Director Amy Vaughn said it was a beautiful day and expressed “thanks to everyone that helped, either through participating, volunteering or sponsoring this event.

“Without support of the community Kids in Motion and now Teens in Motion would not be nearly as effective.

“Special thanks to Nicole Martin, Teens in Motion coordinator,” Vaughn added. “Thanks to all her efforts to put this event together.”
