CARMEL, Ind. (WISH) - The rain held off Saturday morning for the Spirit Run Saturday morning at University High School.
The annual 5K run and walk through Carmel's West Park is hosted by the school's parent association, and has a very important purpose.
The event raises money for both the parent association and School on Wheels - a program that provides school supplies and tutoring for homeless children.
"It was an awesome event," Paula Bray with the University High School Parent Association said. "We are so excited when we woke up and saw the rain we were a little worried but it held off, we had an awesome forecast and the meteorologist in charge told us there would be a window and there was and there was no rain for the race."
That meteorologist being WISHTV's 24-Hour News 8 Chief Meteorologist Steve Bray.
The Spirit Run was part of WISH-TV's Gr8 Health Initiative.
