LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Subaru beat a fundraising record at this year's 5K color run.
The car manufacturing company raised more than $50,000 for Special Olympics Indiana, which is the most money the company has ever brought in from the race.
This year's goal was to raise at least 50K to celebrate the company's 50th anniversary.
Subaru has been hosting this race for five years. The money is raised through registrations fees and 100% of the proceeds go towards Special Olympics.
Event Coordinator Sarah May said the race grows in participants every year. She said the company appreciates the support of its community.
“We are a huge supporter of our community,” said May. “If it weren't for our community, we wouldn't have the success that we have so we're really very lucky to have such strong support in Tippecanoe County.”
This year's race brought out more than 500 runners. Subaru has raised a total of nearly $130,000 for Special Olympics through the years.
