Waldos, Wendas hit the streets for Waldo Waldo 5K

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A game of “Where’s Waldo” wouldn’t have been very hard to win Saturday as thousands of Waldos and Wendas hit the streets downtown in the Waldo Waldo 5K.

It’s the most popular untimed 5K walk and fun run in the entire region.

“Five years ago when we first started it, my sister and I were like, hmm we’ll have 200 people and we had 1,000 people the first year,” said event coordinator Olivia Franks. “Every year it’s just jumped up and up since then.  Community is the most important thing so everybody gets to come out, have fun together, enjoy the beautiful weather and then support a really good cause.”

All money raised benefits local non-profits supporting Waldo Canyon Restoration Disaster Relief and Fire Recovery.
