Organizers of a 5k/10k run/walk are calling it a success.  The second annual Issac's Rays of Hope event was held Sunday at the Confluence Tower in Hartford, and the Alton Regional Convention and Visitor's Bureau's Stephanie Tate tells The Big Z they had a nice sized turnout.

After the race, kids and adults participated in a Super Hero Family Festival.  Kids met their favorite super heroes and enjoyed a bounce house, silent auction, raffle, music, games, concessions and a butterfly release.  Isaac’s Rays of Hope is a non-profit organization supporting children with cancer and their families.
