  • While I waited for the start of the Mud 'N Fun Viking Run at Good Templar Park in Geneva earlier this month, my eyes fell upon Toni Kurfirst, of Aurora, donned in a Viking helmet. Her son Dwayne Kurfirst, also of Aurora, was running in honor of Toni, who is a six-month breast cancer survivor. He also wore a matching Viking helmet throughout the run, which he said was no easy task! This photo was originally published in the Perspective column in the print edition of the Daily Herald.

This photo was originally published in the Perspective column in the print edition of the Daily Herald.,
