Niles Burn Run kicks off - Fox 28: South Bend, Elkhart IN News, Weather, Sports

Niles Burn Run kicks off


The Niles Burn Run kicked off Saturday. The annual event raises money to send children who are burn victims to the Great Lakes Burn Camp.

A few weeks ago the event's trailer was stolen. Luckily, police found it, so the Burn Run had it for the event.

While the trailer was gone several people donated money to replace it. Once it was found however, organizers said they tried to return the money but the donors wouldn't take it back.

Scott Roberts, the Niles Burn Run President said, "We called every one of them up and every single one of them said you  put it toward the camp, so we're really blessed. We turned a really bad situation into a good one."

The Burn Run Ride starts Sunday at noon and registration is open until the ride begins.
