Today the second annual 2K2K Tutu Run and Ride took place in Kingsville, drawing a large crowd of all fitness levels.

Decked out in brightly coloured tutus, participants walked, ran, and rode bikes twice around a two kilometer route in the town’s core, all to raise money for Access Community Support Service, a non-profit organization that aims to support and strengthen the region through services, advocacy, and community partnerships.

The event “just keeps getting better,” says Access executive director Jenna Foley. “This is the second year, and it’s bigger than last year.”

2K2K Tutu kicked off with a mascot race, featuring mascots from local high schools, The Town of Essex, and more.

Some of the younger audience members trying to teach the mascots their favourite dance.

A close finish for the mascot race.

Participants lined up and ready to begin the run.
