St. Mary's Residential Training School 5K

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - Some runners put their best foot forward Saturday for a good cause.

The St. Mary's Challenge is a 5K run and walk through Downtown Alexandria. It's a benefit for the St. Mary's Residential Training School.

Plus the event helps raise awareness about those with special needs.

"The best thing for me is to see the kids having fun," said Sister Mavis Champagne. "Everything else is just making sure everything happens the way it is supposed to, so it's a little bit nerve racking. The main thing is to get the kids here safely to let them have fun, and to get them home safely."

This is the eighth year for the St. Mary's Challenge.
