The Second Annual Safford Lions 5K and 10K Community Mental Health Awareness Run was held Saturday morning at the Eastern Arizona College Discovery Park Campus. According to run organizers, nearly $8,000 was raised in sponsorships and that money combined with registration fees will go to the EAC Counseling Center and to Graham County courts. EAC Counselor Craig Smith said students with no or little insurance can now come to the college for resource referrals. He told the participants "You could be saving a marriage, a family or a life." The top three runners Saturday were:  Gary Giauque, 41, of Safford with a time of 23:00.06, Kareem Phillip, 35, 23:58:79 and Jared Allred, 44, of Bowie, 29:06:01.
