The second annual Rocket Race to benefit AYFS, held on September 21, raised over $5,000 to benefit Auburn Youth and Family Services.

The morning began with a kids’ fun run under clear blue skies. About 30 kids ran two laps around the Auburn High School track, and were greeted by Finz the Shark along with Rocket Race volunteers handing out ribbons.

There were a number of vendors on had providing refreshments, chair massages and kids’ activities, among other things.

The adult division runners left from the high school about 10am, running either a 5K or a 10K course. The top finishers in each age group and division can be viewed here: Auburn Rocket Race
