On Saturday morning, the Kings held their annual 5K walk/run benefiting the Hydrocephalus Association in Redondo Beach at the Village Runner Sporting Goods store on Catalina Avenue. 


Kings alumnus and current radio commentator Daryl Evans hosted the event which was organized by the Kings Care Foundation; Over 1,000 runners and 500 walkers came out for a fun-filled morning.

But...the story of the day, was the dogs.

She warmed up to Bailey rather quickly, giving him a smooch.



But Gustl could only submit to his jealousy for so long...



Gustl and @baileylakings reunited!
