Cloquet grads give back to the kids
Two summers ago, Jeff Leno of Cloquet started the Sawdust 5K race as a way to help his community pay for the annual fireworks display on the Fourth of July.
Now, the race has nearly doubled in size and the former Lumberjack athlete is ready to start a special fund to help the activities department at the school.
"We've been very pleasantly surprised by the race's growth," Jeff Leno said this week. "We had 221 runners the first year (2011) and 290 last year."
