Mi­chael Cavanaugh was the over­all win­ner at Sunday morn­ing’s ninth an­nu­al North­east Philly 5-Mile Run and 2-Mile Walk at North­east Phil­adelphia Air­port.

Cavanaugh, 24, battled windy con­di­tions to run a good time of 30:00.4, more than two minutes ahead of the run­ner-up.

The event is or­gan­ized by City Coun­cil­man Den­nis O’Bri­en (R-at large). Pro­ceeds be­ne­fit the North­east Phil­adelphia Youth Al­li­ance, which O’Bri­en formed when he was a state rep­res­ent­at­ive.

The al­li­ance con­sists of the fol­low­ing sev­en groups: the Academy Sabres Sports As­so­ci­ation, Cal­vary Ath­let­ic As­so­ci­ation, Liberty Bell Youth Or­gan­iz­a­tions, Park­wood Youth Or­gan­iz­a­tion, Penn Academy Ath­let­ic As­so­ci­ation, Phil­adelphia Soc­cer Club and Tor­res­dale Boys Club.

A disc jockey and the Penn Academy dan­cers en­ter­tained the crowd. The Tor­res­dale Boys Club cheer­lead­ers en­cour­aged the run­ners and walk­ers along the way.
