MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) - To shake things up, the Arthritis Foundation Kansas Chapter, hosted a ‘Halloween Hustle’ 5K run and 1 mile walk in Manhattan Saturday morning.

Participants were encouraged to come dressed up in costumes, and participate in the costume contest for chances to win prizes.

To continue the Halloween theme, there was also a ‘Trick or Trot’ for the youth participants to receive candy on their trot around the pavilion.

After the Trick or Trot and costume contest participants headed outside for the 5K and 1 mile runs around Manhattan’s City Park.

Participants in the Halloween Hustle raised nearly thirty thousand dollars for Saturday’s event to go towards the Arthritis Foundation.

“We pride ourselves on being a research based organization, our goal is to find a cure, but we also provide programs and resources for people to help live their best life for people who are suffering now.” Arthritis Foundation (KS Chapter), Development Manager, Lauren Hambleton says.

While this was the first Halloween themed event in Manhattan for the Arthritis Foundation, they plan to host the Halloween Hustle again in October 2020.
