Miss Delaware 5K walk and run raises funds for charity On May 4, the Miss Delaware Scholarship Organization held a 5K Walk/Run for the benefit of the Supporting K.I.D.D.S. pro- gram and the Miss Delaware Scholarship Organization. The race featured 200 runners and walkers and raised $5,000 for the two organizations. The overall men&apos;s winner was Greg Watson with a time of 17:03; finishing first overall for the women was Kirsten Walther with a time of 18:39. Twenty-six different categories of winners were recognized in a variety of age groups. A complete list of winners and their times is avail- able at the Miss Delaware pageant Web sit at <www.missdelaware. org>. A part of the race proceeds will be used in the form of scholarship assistance made available to young Delaware women on June 10, when Miss Delaware 2000 is crowned in Rehoboth Beach. As part of the Miss America Organi- zation, the Miss Delaware Schol- arship Organization is part of the largest single source of women's scholarships in the world. Last year alone, the Miss America Or- ganization made available over $32 million in scholarship money to deserving young women. Proceeds will also be donated to the Supporting KTD.D.S. pro- gram. This is a nonprofit agency that provides support for children involved in death, divorce or sep- aration. The program provides a safe and caring environment for children and teenagers facing a significant loss. Proceeds raised will be used to purchase books, videos, games and activities that benefit grieving children. The 5K Walk/Run was organ- ized by Kama Boland, the reign- ing Miss Delaware 1999, and Jody Kelly, Miss Delaware 1998. Each year, the current Miss Delaware, along with the previ- ous year's winner, organizes a benefit race to support the Miss Delaware Scholarship Organiza- tion and the charity of her choice. +'As a volunteer for Supporting K.I.D.D.S. over the past four years, I have watched the count- less children who are going through the most trying times of their lives, greatly benefit from the support group setting," Boland said. "With over 200 run- ners and dozens of volunteers at the event, it was exciting for me to see so many people supporting a program I really believe in." For more information, contact Boland at 302-234-9808.

Using Polaroid technology, the MTI PhotoScreener takes an instant photograph of a child's eyes, safely and painlessly, without di- lation.
