It's become a end of the school year tradition for KOTA Territory elementary schools.
Amongst cheering and a spirit of sportsmanship, students and parents gathered at South Canyon Elementary for the 6th Annual Character Counts Run/Walk.
The 1k and 2k events serves as fundraising opportunity to benefit literacy and physical education in schools.
Awards and prizes were handed out for the top finishers in several categories, including a strider race for the kids not yet old enough for school.
This year's event raised over $13,000 in cash and another $6450 in merchandise.
