Summit to Summit has huge turn out

Posted: Updated:
This morning hundreds of walkers and runners took off for a great cause.

With the bang of a gun, the 6th annual Summit to Summit run and walk commenced at summit Christian College. Runners and walkers of all ages headed up the Scottsbluff national monument to get their hearts pumping and to get the word out about the importance of education.

In years past the number of runners would hit roughly 300, but this year it increased to nearly 450.

SCC's Marketing and Publications Specialist Hayley Herzog says the event raises money for students.

"One of our goals is to graduate our students debt–free, which is really amazing for a college as a lot of people have to take out loans and stuff, but we really like to work with our students and give them a lot of scholarship opportunities. So this event will help raise funds for scholarships and it really all goes back to the students," says Herzog.
