The weather may have been a little on the chilly side Saturday morning, but still a large group of people merged on the campus of Carver Elementary School in Mount Olive to take part in the Outlaw Foundation 5K Run and 1 Mile Walk to raise money for cancer patients and cancer survivors.
The Outlaw Foundation was founded over six years ago by Bill Outlaw who was diagnosed with cancer and who now is cancer free. The Outlaw Foundation was formed to help people of the community who are fighting cancer to overcome some of their hardships during the process of healing, and hopefully become a cancer-free survivor.
Over the past six years the foundation has helped 227 families and continues to help people and their families. Each year the amount of runners taking part has continue to grow larger as more people are getting involved in cancer awareness.
This year they had 326 adults and children to take part in the sixth annual Outlaw Foundation 5K Run and Walk. The event has gained popularity as it grows. More and more groups and businesses are coming out to help support the foundation efforts.
