Hundreds of Runners Race to Raise Money at Run for Life 5K
University of Virginia
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va (WVIR) -
Hundreds of runners hit the pavement for a good cause Saturday morning in Charlottesville.
The Zeta Tau Alpha chapter at the University of Virginia held its 20th annual Run for Life 5K. Food, water and prize stations were set up all around nameless field for the runners.
Organizers say funds raised through the race go to a cause many of the participants can relate to. Zeta Tau Alpha raised nearly $20,000 for the UVA Breast Care Center through last year's Run for Life 5K.
NBC29 was a proud sponsor of the event.
