People of all ages were seen racing in their Halloween costumes at Zane State College this afternoon.

The physical therapy assistant club at Zane State hosted its first annual Halloween costume 5k run/walk today. A donation of $10 for adults and $5 for kids got you registered for the race. President of the physical therapist assistant club, Amanda Hite explains that all the proceeds went to support Miracles in Motion.

"All proceeds from registration are benefiting Miracles in Motion, which is a ministry that provides free physical therapy services for children who can’t otherwise pay for services."

The club had a raffle after the run/walk and it also provided snacks and light refreshments. Around 40 people participated in the race this year and there are high hopes to make this an annual event.

"October is physical therapy month and so we are hoping that this event will become annual as we want to honor physical therapy month and we would like to continue to provide a charitable fundraiser for the community and we foresee doing that for miracles in motion in the coming years. So that we hope that the physical therapist assistant club here will continue this effort every year."

If you’re looking to participate in next years race, be sure to stay posted to Zane State’s website next October.
