A local 4-H club had everyone running and walking for a very good cause Saturday morning.

The Oak Grove Explorers 4-H Club hosted the third annual 5K Run and Walk for Hervida.

They're raising money for the Hervida Camp in Waterford.

Members of the 4-H club says they want to make sure that the camp, which has been in operation since 1922, is available for future generations.

"It's important because for me personally, four generations of my family have gone to camp for various camps. Besides 4-H camps, there's school camps held and church camps," says Oak Grove Explorers 4-H Club Advisor, Andrea Adkins.

All proceeds will benefit the Hervida 4-H Camp's Endownment Fund.

If you would like to enroll your kids to a summer program at the historic camp, please call 740-376-7431 or visit
