CRANDON - It's the second year the run's been held.

About 400 students ran in the mini color run, which went two laps around the school.

Crandon elementary's mini color run cooperates with the Ties That Bind Us.

That group supports cancer patients in the area.

Elementary students knew what they were running for.


The kids had a lot of fun supporting a good cause.

The first place runner Tucker Belland says he was thinking about one thing throughout the race.

"One of my friends aunts has cancer, and kind of fighting for that," said Belland.

Students show us that fighting against cancer is something everyone can care about, no matter how young.

They've only raised a couple hundred dollars since they started collecting donations on Thursday. Workers hope people will think about how much some people in Nepal lost.

"My heart goes out to those people because if you were to lose part of your family, and where you live, and where you work, and where you've grown up, I'm sure you'd want to be supported," said employee Mitchell Marshall.

Golden Harvest is fundraising through Samaritan's Purse. Workers encourage people to donate, even if it's a small amount.
