The annual run/walk at Goddard Park attracted nearly 700 participants.
The sun wasn't shining, but no one minded at Saturday's Scott Carlson/ALS 5K at Goddard Park. That's because rain had been in the forecast and many remembered last year's cold rain. Nearly 700 people registered by the start of the race. The top three finishers as well as the top female finisher were from Connecticut. The winner of the race was William Sanders, from Wethersfield, Conn., with a time of 15:04.4. Marie Davenport of Guilford, Conn., was the first female finisher, with a time of 17:07.2.

It wasn't Jan. 1, but it wasn't July 1 either on Sunday, when Special Olympics Rhode Island held its sixth annual Torch Run Plunge at Goddard Park. More than 100 people got wet, with twice that many there in support. Donna Sawyer of East Greenwich was one of the plungers. Her grandson Charlie is a member of North Kingstown Special Olympics. After Sawyer heard about the plunge, she consulted with Charlie's big brother Christopher, a third grader at Meadowbrook Farms, and the two of them decided they would do it together. Students from Central Falls High School raised $2,500 for the plunge — 25 people from Central Falls took the plunge. Participants like Scott Maranda of Warwick were not at all thrilled with getting wet, but were doing it …
