The skies cleared after days of blustery rain, and nearly 300 people came to chilly Jennings Beach to enjoy a sunny Sunday morning — and boost a worthy cause — at CancerCare’s 9th annual Run/Walk for Hope.

The event raised money to support the non-profit’s free, professional services provided to anyone affected by cancer.

The 5K race at the event was USATF-CT certified.

In addition to the run/walk events, children could play games like oversized checkers and Jenga, as well as color with crayons.
