So there's great weather, sun's shining not a cloud in the sky folks having a great time as you can see here and it's all for a good cause.

"The runners will be coming straight toward us they'll go approximately three miles and they'll finish directly to my right"

The route is mapped out.
Shoes are laced up... And the crowd is full of excitement.

"All of us right here baby!"
"young life fundraiser 5k to get kids to camp."

The Christian group hopes to send young people who are less fortunate to camp this summer.

"I think its calmed him down a lot he has some great friends and they are leading him in the right way."

Linda Wagner's son is a member, and she says the camp experience changed her son's life.

"The guys have a lot of fun, they do a lot of things but it's all in the name of God and that's where this goes.

With the great weather, there was great participation.

"I think he had about 140 the first year, 250 and 347, so were expecting this year to be our largest crowd ever."

Joann Zimmerman, his wife Sue, and their son Jonas decided to make this year's run a family affair.

"We love to run, it's beautiful weather and its supporting a good cause."

"There getting their exercise and participatin' like this it's good."

"They just need community support and the crowd is absolutely gigantic."

This right here, the finish line for today's 5k organizers believing they have a bigger crowd than they had last year which hopefully means they'll be able to send more kids to summer camp.
