Run with a Dot/Caryn's Kids 5K and 1-Mile Fun Run honors the late Caryn Hyatt Suthoff, Dodge Elementary School kindergarten teacher
At the Run with a Dot/Caryn's Kids 5K and 1-Mile Fun Run on Saturday, January 10 was mascot Heidi, owned by David and Dillon Turnipseed.
Dillon was a fellow kindergarten teacher and friend of Dodge Elementary School's Caryn Hyatt Suthoff, who died of cancer in December 2014.
The run honored the late teacher, and proceeds from the event will help support a scholarship for one of her students when he or she enters college.
The race, held on the campus of the University of South Alabama, was chaired by Meighan Harton, first-grade teacher at Dodge Elementary School, and hosted by the Order of Polka Dots Mardi Gras society.
