Despite sub-freezing temperatures on Saturday, many brave men, women and children took their place at the start line to compete in the 3rd Annual Ugly Sweater 5K Run in Fish Creek. The Northern Door Program Center of the Door County YMCA puts on the event and puts all proceeds and registration fees toward their annual campaign. Megan Schneider, the Adult and Youth Program Coordinator at Northern Door, said the event has become quite popular throughout the community.
The run was not the only event of the day. Santa Claus made an appearance, and a string quartet was also in attendance to play music inside as runners completed the race.
