Rain doesn't stop Forrest's Run

WESTON (WAOW) -

Hundreds of runners battled the rain to take part in the third annual Forrest's Run in Weston.

For many people, the race has become a tradition.

The race honors 14-year-old Forrest Goestch, a D.C. Everest student who died while warming up for cross-country practice.    

Organizers estimate about 700 runners laced-up to show their support and help raise money for the Forrest Goestch Charity.

Family members say the community's support is overwhelming.

"It makes me very proud to be able to be a part of this and to see so many people come here with such a positive attitude, just wanting to be here to make a difference," said Cheryl Goestch, Forrest's Aunt.

Organizers said they hope to continue growing the event.
