Trail of tutus

Mark Hatfield Trailhead, east of Hood River, was the county’s busiest place on Saturday morning, with the Lila May Tutu Trot — “Help the Dancer Beat the Cancer” — a fun run and walk held to raise funds to help Lila May Schow and her family contend with costs connected to the four-year-old’s cancer treatments.Adding to the party-like atmosphere was the prevalence of versions of Lila May’s favorite garment, the tutu. Costume winners, chosen by Lila May: Most Creative, Bryan Mears; Best Male, Michael Clement; Best Female, Nancy Clement; Best Kid, Jacy Johnston.
