Some of the youngest runners led the annual D.A.R.E. 5K Fun Run from the starting position Saturday morning. Despite the consistent rainfall, the event broke its previous preregistration record and featured a large number of attendees. Recently, the local D.A.R.E. program has grown to require two officers to administer the program. Current D.A.R.E. officer Lt. Kyle Van Otterloo is being joined by Spencer Police Officer Daaron Hansen in the efforts to educate students about living drug free lives.
