VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - A 5k run will help further the education of students in Vigo County.

It's part of the "Share Your Heart" campaign at Ivy Tech Community College.

Through their annual 5k run, it raises money for scholarships. 

About 100 people laced up their shoes for the cause. 

With their help, organizers say more students will get the financial help they need. 

"We are with these students every day and we see the need that they have," said Chancellor Leanne Crookes, "So what that allows us to do is give back in a different way."

Runners received handmade awards, crafted by students on campus, for their participation.
