About 120 people participated in the fifth annual Run for Hope on Saturday, Sept. 16, in Nisswa.

The event - featuring 10K and 5K runs, a 2-mile walk and a kids' dash - moved to Nisswa this year, when Bridges of Hope partnered with the Nisswa Chamber of Commerce for the event as part of the annual Nisswa Fall Festival and Smokin' Hot BBQ Contest.
