Guam - The 15th Annual Payless Kick the Fat 5K took place at the Paseo Stadium with an estimated 2,700 plus runners taking part in the event. There were over 3,500 registered for the run, which is known for its community fair with health screenings, music, refreshments and family oriented atmosphere. A portion of the proceeds raised from the 5K will go to help the Japan Disaster Relief, Guma Mami and Erica's House of Hope.
