WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)—Purdue University hosted its 7th annual half-marathon and 5k race on Saturday morning.

Runners began at Ross-Ade stadium but traveled through different parts of the university, Lafayette and West Lafayette during the course. The race was created to give back to the community.

Proceeds from runners and money through the Franciscan Health sponsorship will go to Purdue-Athletics-Life-Success Program for youth.

Franciscan Health Sports Manager, Craig Voll said their sponsorship for the race is a great way to get people out and moving.

“We know that if people are involved in any kind of activity, it's going to help with long-term health issues,” said Voll.

The PALS Program is a summer camp designed for youth to get active and learn about nutrition. Voll’s said he's is proud to be a part of a race designed for giving back to the community.

“To be able to give back to disadvantaged youth or what have you, I think it's just a part of our mission in giving back to the community that we're honored to serve,” said Volls.

Thousands of runners attended this morning. Some even traveled from different parts of the state.
