Runners, walkers support kids in hospital

Posted: Updated:
THOMAS TOWNSHIP, MI (WNEM) -

Runners and walkers hit the pavement early Sunday to help children at a local hospital at the "Go the Extra Mile for Covenant Kids" event.

The event raised money to help local kids in the hospital.

The fundraiser started five years ago.

The event features several races including a 5,000-meter run/walk and half marathon.  

With the sun shining down, participants were greeted with cheers and encouragement as they crossed the finish line, but runners agree the best part of the race was giving back to kids in their community.
