A run to benefit a member of the local ultrarunning community will take place Saturday from 8 a.m.-noon at the Placer High School track. “Run a Mile For Dan” is a fundraiser for Dan Moores, who was diagnosed with leukemia in November. Moores is the proprietor of the Auburn Running Company and a longtime supporter of the Western States 100 as both a participant and a volunteer. All funds raised will go toward offsetting Moores’ medical costs not covered by insurance. Sponsors are asked to pledge $10 or more per mile. Donations will be accepted at the Placer High track or can be mailed to Auburn Running Company, 833 Lincoln Way, Auburn, CA 95603. For more information, contact the Auburn Running Company at (530) 823-2002.
