WATERLOO (KWWL) -

 

Hundreds of kids and adults laced up their running shoes for the 2nd annual Cunningham 5K in Waterloo.

The race is a fundraiser for the Dr. Walter Cunningham School for Excellence.

It's also a way to motivate young kids to stay active, and live healthy -- something Cunningham teachers try to each their kids every day.

"That's the one thing we try to instill in our kids here that, exercise is healthy. and we try to teach them to eat right. We have a program here, healthy fruit snacks, that we supply to kids each and every day. So they get a whole lot of this throughout the week," said Cunningham teacher Brad Cross.

Proceeds go toward future field trips, parent activities, and classroom materials.
