WZZM - There are many stories at the Fifth Third River Bank Run, stories of why someone would sign up to run.
One team taking part on May 11th comes from an East Grand Rapids school, Lakeside Elementary.
The principal there is going through cancer treatments and to show support, Michelle Kirk and Katie McIntosh created 'Team Kehm' to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House.
To learn more about why they are running, click on the video link. The team is trying to reach a fundraising goal of $10,000. If you would like to help, an event is planned at the Derby Station in East Grand Rapids on May 1.
From 5pm until closing time, the Derby Station will donate 20% of sales to the Ronald McDonald House. Staff members from East Grand Rapids schools will serve as greeters.
