About 40 kids from Skagway and as far away as Africa participated in the annual Kids Run for the Paws and Claws Animal Shelter on August 30. From top: young girls and a toddler strike out together for a friendly jog around the block; a member of the African Children’s Choir wins the 11 and 12-year-old division; Eliza Myers hugs a puppy that needs adoption; and runners in the 8 and 9-year-old division take off on their sprint.
