Travers and Kristie Wainright from Tulsa sneak a peak at the GTR newspaper to learn more about the annual Tulsa Run event that attracts thousands of runners from all across the United States.
Steve Kime’s (Forrest Gump’s) appearance attracts a lot of attention and brings awareness to the Special Olympics program for children and adults with mental retardation.
