Flyers Hold First Annual Gritty 5K Charity Run
The inaugural Gritty 5K was held yesterday morning, when "approximately 3,000 'Gritizens' showed up to the Wells Fargo Center dressed as the beloved mascot." The funds raised from the event "will benefit the Flyers Charities to help support a multitude" of Philadelphia-area nonprofits (PHILADELPHIA.CBSLOCAL.com, 10/13). There was a "sea of people dressed head to toe in orange gear," led by the "infamous Gritty himself." Before the race, Gritty "arrived, Olympic torch in hand, to the sound of cheers" (NJ.com, 10/13).
