Saturday morning, the T.K. Martin Center will be filled with Disney princesses, Scooby Doo and many super heroes cheering on participants in the T.K. Martin Fun Run. But despite the iconic figures, the biggest stars of the day will be the children associated with Project IMPACT.

The fun run is a fundraiser for Project IMPACT, an early intervention preschool that serves 40 children with special needs. The one-mile run will begin and end at the T.K. Martin Center with cheer stations surrounding the path. The cheer stations have lists of participants in the fun run where people will cheer them on by name. Elizabeth Williams, a special education teacher at Project IMPACT, said there were more than 300 people participating in the cheer stations.
