Mother Nature wasn't nice this morning for the Kelly's Fun Run/Walk for the Quincy YWCA as snowy and windy conditions prevailed. Despite those elements, a great turnout made the trek through the streets of Quincy Sunday morning. Once Kevin Reed fired off the cannon hundreds of runners and walkers took off.

Friday is Military Appreciation Night at the ballpark as the Quincy Gems play host to the Military All-Stars at Q.U. Stadium. The Military All-Star team was founded by President George H. Bush to promote the Wounded Warrior Program in the United States.
Over 300 runners and walkers turned out for the Annual Kelly's St. Patrick's Day Fun Run/Walk for the benefit of the Quincy YWCA. With the blast of Kevin Reed's cannon they were off and running or walking at 9:39 Sunday morning.
