Locals win gold in charity run
WORKING UP AN APPETITE — John Mansoor and Amjed Aboukhadijeh of El Dorado Hills and Kevin Pool of Folsom joined 28,000 fellow runners in the 17th
annual Thanksgiving Run to Feed the Hungry on Thursday. It may have been one of the coldest Thanksgivings in Sacramento’s history, but all three men brought home gold. Pool, 27, finished in just over 31 minutes to win the 10K race where Aboukhadijeh, 18, came in fifth with a time of 32:23. John Mansoor, 55, came in 21st with a time of 36:16. Aboukhadijeh and Mansoor won first-place medals in their age groups.
