Hundreds gather for Ronald McDonald House benefit

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds gathered at the Vanderburgh County Fairgrounds on Saturday for the Color Blaze 5K event to benefit the Ronald McDonald House.

Runners from all over showed up wearing white clothing so they could be dowsed with colored paint. Organizers say this 5K is a non-competitive event, focused on entertainment and helping the less fortunate. They say that Saturday's turn-out proved it was a success.

"We're very appreciative of the people that's come out today and supported the cause and whatever," says Steve Schroer. "We're truly grateful for them. I have to say it's exceeding our expectations."
