Despite the heat, more than 400 runners took to Hauppauge's streets for the 13th annual 5K Thunder Run Sunday morning.
The annual event raises funds for the Rolling Thunder Special Needs Program, a nonprofit organization helping challenged individuals participate in mainstream athletics. Rolling Thunder was hoping to raise enough funds to continue its programs and spend its athletes to Disney World for the Half Marathon and Marathon Relays in January 2012.
Rolling Thunder member Dan Renahan of Coram took first place completing the 3.1 mile run in 16 minutes and 13 seconds, with an average time of 5:14 per mile.
