Catch Cupid 5K raises money for local teens

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Saturday's cold weather didn't stop over 100 people from running to help at risk teens.

The Catch Cupid 5K raised money for Kids In Motion, a program that teaches kids the value of work and community through service projects.

Members of the group say doing the service projects helps build character.

"It teaches these kids the importance of giving back to other people. It teaches them that life isn't just about themselves that they can do great things. It shows them their potential. A lot of these kids never realized the good that they can do," said Kids In Motion program director Amy Vaughn.

"It's actually about getting to work as a team, being able to meet new friends," said Alex Meyer of Kids In Motion.

Kids in 6th grade through age 15 who live in Hannibal, Bowling Green or Louisiana are eligible to participate in the program.
