Cooper Tire Cobra Jackie Dees gets set to kick during a Thursday kickball game at the Marathon Diamonds, which was one event in the daylong United Way of Hancock County’s 2018 campaign kickoff. Zac Maag, catcher for Ag Credit Raising the Barn, watches the action in the background. The kickoff began at 6 a.m. with a 5K run/walk at the Hancock County Fairgrounds. Food trucks were stationed at the fairgrounds from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. A kids’ zone with inflatables and face painting were featured at the Cube Thursday evening. This year’s United Way campaign theme is “United We Win!” (Photo by Randy Roberts)
