Thousands of Tucsonans braved the heat for a fabulous local tradition.

The 12th annual Meet Me Downtown 5K took place on Sunday evening and garnered an impressive crowd on a beautiful summer evening.

The race certainly fulfilled its goal of bringing the community together for a good cause. Participants stayed hydrated as the race got underway. Runners of all skill levels, from novices to advanced athletes, take part in the fun. Live music and family-friendly activities made this the place to be on Sunday night.

Funds raised benefit several local organizations and charities, including the Children’s Museum of Tucson and the Greater Tucson Leadership. For more information, please visit the official website and consider getting involved next year!

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
