Candy Cane course

December 31, 2013 

A group of volunteers from Lee’s Summit displayed their running skills Dec. 14 during a Candy Cane Course 5 and 10K run in downtown Lee’s Summit highlighting their attempt to raise awareness about the plight of Christian and Muslim residents of Bethlehem (and other West Bank towns) who live behind a high separation wall and are subjected to restrictions and time consuming checkpoints on a daily basis. Here, Kristine Elizabeth, right, hands out “Oh Little Town of Bethlehem” cards to runners. Below, the runners take off to begin the race.
