Hundreds of Runners Firght Hunger at Charity Run

On a big day of eating on Thursday, more than 500 gathered to fight hunger. Runners and walkers took part in the 2nd annual Union Mission Drumstick Dash Thursday with the proceeds to purchase food for Christmas baskets that are given out to more than 20,000 families statewide. The course took runners through Kanawha City, between the University of Charleston and Charleston Memorial Hospital. Runners brought canned food items as donations before the run/walk.
