Lawrence County's ATOD (Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs) Coalition hosted its fourth annual Run Like a Boss 5K race on Saturday morning at Stewart Park. Alison Johnson of ATOD said the event raised approximately $6,400.

Johnson thanked the participants and sponsors who helped make the event a success. (See the related ad for a list of sponsors.)

For the third year in a row, the 5K winner was Kendall Townsley, age 16, of Cave City. The race was first held in 2014, when Townsley, then 13, finished first in his age division.

Other top 10 finishers in the race were as follows:

Second place, Daniel Hoffman, age 32, of Imboden;

Third place, Colton Yarbro, age 21, of Powhatan;

Fourth place and female winner, Emily Davis, age 15, of Walnut Ridge;

Fifth place, Crystal Ring, age 28, of Pocahontas;

Sixth place, Donald Cavenaugh, age 65, of Walnut Ridge;

Seventh place, Korwin Johnson, age 13, of Imboden;

Eighth place, Hannah Hatfield, age 13, of Walnut Ridge;

Ninth place, Carol Earles, age 47, of Ravenden Springs; and

10th place, Joel Hoffman, age 11, of Imboden.

The 5K race helps raise money to aid in ATOD's effort as a drug prevention coalition whose primary goal is to reduce the underage use of alcohol and other drugs within Lawrence County.
