Color Me Freedom fun run

The Milton-Freewater Kiwanis Club hosted its annual “Color Me Freedom” fun run Saturday. The 5K event started and finished at Yantis Park, and registration fees were to help fund the club’s scholarship program and work it does with local Oregon National Guard families. Guard units, including the one based in Milton-Freewater, respond to state and national emergencies, military conflicts and natural disasters. Kiwanis officials said a contingent of 40 National Guard members came from Salem to participate in this year’s fun run.
