FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- University of Saint Francis held their 10th annual Formula for Life 5K Run and Walk.

The money raised from registration and their silent auction goes to help children from Haiti.

Organizers say they have a lot of community support from over the years, so they weren't too worried about the rain.

They say every penny raised helps.

"Even just a little bit goes a long way. Fifteen dollars goes a really long way in Haiti and sponsor a child for a whole year essentially, so just a few bucks is a big difference," Bonnie Smith said.

Along with the auction, there was live music, and food to thank the community for participating.
