Running of the Bulldogs raises $3,000

By Matthew Harrell
The seventh annual Running of the Bulldogs raised $3,000 to help fight cancer.
Forty-three runners ran, jogged and walked a 3.1-mile course that weaved through dirt roads, went down Main Street, and started and finished at the Bell High School track.
Ian Townsend was the fastest male runner and Elisabeth Diamond was the fastest female.
Townsend was the fastest runner overall, completing the course in 17:30, followed by his brother, Tristan, who finished in 18:15.
The Bell High School JROTC began the day by leading the pledge of allegiance and provided water to the runners with stations set up throughout the course.
The money that was raised will go to a local family battling cancer and a donation to the American Cancer Society at the Relay For Life in Fanning Springs May 4.
