Running to help find a cure

The Salem Country Club’s 5k Race on Sunday raised funds for the Curing Retinal Blindness Foundation for research that will help find a cure for degenerative retinal disease. The disease, which can ultimately lead to blindness, affects only 300 juveniles across the entire United States. A local resident, Olivia Hoffman, is among those currently battling this condition. Race officials said just under 50 people participated in the 5K event. (Salem News photo by Larry Shields)
