CORTLAND - Local runners of all ages squeezed into their track shoes Sunday afternoon in support a good cause, as the third annual 5K race, cookout and family event got under way.
The Toys for Tots event is hosted by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves, with all of the proceeds going to help needy children in Trumbull and Mahoning counties.

The 2013 edition saw 32 official entrants sprint across the marked lanes at Immigration Station Park in Cortland.
