And they're off: Runners and walkers alike got together for a good cause at Memorial Stadium Saturday morning. The 2nd Annual Union Hospital 5K more than doubled its number of participants from last year with all the proceeds going to the Vigo County School Corporation's Backpack Program. Participants took a lap around Memorial Stadium then down to 25th Street along the Heritage Trail before returning to the stadium for the finish. Brooke Horn, the organizer of the event and a Health Advocate Nurse at Union Hospital, credited teh Vigo County School Corporation and Wabash Valley Road Runners for spreading the word about the event.
