Kids get moving at Fifth Third Junior

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) Thousands of kids hit the track at Wyoming High School, helping usher in the first event of race week at Fifth Third River Bank Run Junior. Kids have been preparing all year, taking part in the Feelin’ Good Mileage Club through their schools. Fifty thousand kids are participating in the program this year. Through their school, they get a box of cool stuff, then they walk, run, or jog for punches on a card that they can redeem for prizes. If they log five miles on the card, they could participate in Fifth Third Junior for free.
