SOUTH SALT LAKE — Students at Woodrow Wilson Elementary School took part in a jog-a-thon Friday to help raise money to buy livestock for economically developing nations.
The jog-a-thon was in conjunction with Heifer International, a global nonprofit humanitarian assistance organization working to help end hunger and poverty. It provides living gifts of area-appropriate livestock and training in environmentally sound agricultural practices to families in need to help lift themselves out of poverty to become self-reliant.
The kids started running at 9 a.m. They ran a 3K marathon, from the school at 2567 S. Main Street to the Pal Boxing Center on 2825 S. 200 East.
Students jogged to earn credits to buy the gifts.
