A fun fitness event gives back to the community.

Team Godspeed hosted the "Y City Smile Mile" Saturday. The mile run down Main Street brings together runners of all ages in a friendly competition.

 "I thought I was giving back but truly this event gives back to me more than I ever thought it would when I first started I thought I was giving back to them but just having that I think everybody involved is blessed by this event," said Christine Williams, Event Coordinator.

Participants could run by themselves or as part of a team. The race is a way for families to get more involved in the community.

"From the mile we just hope to encourage that they have such a good time that they venture out into other races or as a family," said Williams.

Awards were presented for first, second and third place. Area businesses sponsored the event.
