Hundreds of runners, walkers and community members gathered at the Coweta County Fairgrounds Saturday morning for the seventh annual RACE for the Orphans event led by Jason and Kelly Preston.

The event is the main fundraiser for the local nonprofit, which assists local families in the process of adopting children both domestically and internationally. This year, race registration profits and donations will benefit nine families currently in the adoption process.
