Cushing’s Disease Charity Football Game
As announced in the Courier News, a charity football game was to take place on Seidler Field Saturday afternoon. The proceeds will benefit research into Cushing’s Disease, Plainfield non-profit group C.U.R.E. whose goal is to rebuild community center in town, and towards the medical bills of Erica Brown, a Plainfield resident who suffers from the rare disorder.
Retired NFL players Donald Jones and Manny Collins were on hand for the event, the former participating as a coach and the latter as a player. I was able to get some shots of the action around the game, which went on without a hitch under ominous skies. Sports photographer Cornelius Shaw was in attendance as well, and Plainfield View will share his in-game photos as soon as possible.
Queen City 5k Walk/Run
Last weekend’s 5th Annual Queen City 5k Walk/Run had a strong turnout despite the weather, considered by its founder Darryl Clark as yet another year of growth. The event’s pre-registrations doubled to sixty-five, and considering an understandable reduction in day-of registrants, the turn out was not too far off from previous year totals.
Cold temperatures and rain limited the amount of pictures that I took, but I was able to get a few at the finish line.
