The OktoBEARfest 5K was the final event in this year’s Beary Healthy 5K Challenge.
Purple shirts and teddy bears were common sights around Hamlin on Sunday, Oct. 20, as hundreds of runners took to the town center of Horizon West for a fun 5K. The 2019 OktoBEARfest 5K fun run and festival took place next to Cinépolis Hamlin and included both a 5K and kids’ fun run, breakfast, raffles, food stands, prize giveaways, a beer garden and games. Proceeds benefited Bears Who Care, which provides teddy bears and books to children in need throughout the community. The OktoBEARfest event was the final one in the 2019 Beary Healthy 5K Challenge.
