LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The 5K was moved to Munger Park this week due to the flooding at the Wabash Heritage Trail. Lafayette Urban Ministry Executive Director Joe Micon said the Lafayette Parks and Recreation Department still made the race possible.
"They were able to clear things out of the lake's drain and by this morning the trails reemerged and we had a terrific run. It was a brisk morning, very fast times. I think everybody had a great time," Micon said.
Micon says the 5K brought in about $2,000. That money will be added to funds raised in September at the Hunger Hike. All proceeds will go to LUM's food assistance programs, St. Thomas Aquinas' Haiti Ministry, and Food Finders Food Bank.
