Area skateboarders will host a skate exhibition as a fundraiser for the Runyon family at 4 p.m. Sept. 9 in Okerberg Park. 

The event will feature food, music and a skateboard competition using the skate park equipment in Okerberg Park on the Newton Activity Center campus. 

Admission to the event is free, though there is a $5 entry fee for those wishing to compete. 

All funds raised will be donated to the family of Alyssa Runyon, 24, and her daughter Zaylynn Paz, 4, who were found murdered in their Newton home Aug. 8.
