Northwoods residents run for their livesSubmitted: 06/29/2013
Story By Marisa Silvas


RHINELANDER - Hundreds of people ran for their lives in Rhinelander this morning. Well, actually they just took part in the Hodag Run For Your Life 5 and 10 K.

It was the 7th year of the race and a record 456 runners hit the streets. The run is hosted by the YMCA of the Northwoods.

Since the start of the event, over 14 thousand dollars has been raised for the Y, with part of those funds going toward the Strong Kids campaign.

A couple of our Newswatch 12'ers were on hand as well. Hayley Tenpas and Lyndsey Stemm were chasing each other.

But lucky for them, they didn't have to chase this guy! Kids from one to twelve years old had the chance to run after the Hodag. They followed him all the way around the courthouse and got in a good workout.

Grandpa Hodag was also there for the youngsters. How cute is this? Everyone had a great time and were glad to see the Hodags come out of hiding.
