Ogdensburg's Renown taxidermist Larry Vielhauer, a former high school distance running champion, picked the event to make his first race in several years.
"It is a great cause and I just wanted to participate and help out Al. I haven't done a race in a long time so I walked with Al and his wife Frida, When we reached the high way on the way in and I stepped it up because I wanted to make sure I put in a full effort," said Vielhauer.
Mooney indicated that he would also hold the Spring Patriot Run at the Dobisky Community Center.
