    MAGIC MOMENT OF THE DAY...... 4 year old Dakari Saunders who has Cerebral Palsy really wanted to "run" in the race with his peers so he was placed at the 200m start line and he ran to cheers of the crowd who gave him a standing ovation. You should have seen his face when he crossed the finish line... Priceless.
