It started off as a community service project brought about by 4th and 5th graders. They decided on a mile run in honor of breast cancer awareness month.
Landon Economy a 4th grader said "We wanted to raise awareness for the people that went through breast cancer."
"Women in our community have to fight for their lives, and we just wanted to help make them feel comfortable so that they could have a night to their families and have fun with them" said Kyra Evans a 5th grader.
Principal Clement said it has blossomed into more than just a mile run. "Health and fitness piece for themselves in our 5 to 1 program. It's also gone into their writing and they're reaching out to the community."
Students even made posters and put them all around the community. They got friends and family to pledge and the money that they raise today will go to those in need.
Parents like Tracy Colby are honored that their children are a part of a school that's doing something for a great cause. "It's fantastic it's an overwhelming feeling. I have always supported the schools and I feel just a sense of gratitude to the kids and the teachers that have decided and chosen that this is something important and dear to their hearts."
"To help our community and have our communities do well" said Evans.
"I'm just really proud of just the effort that they've put in" said Colby.
