BOISE - A local non-profit continued its efforts Sunday to help local kids fighting cancer.
Ryan Stearns founded Boise's Got Faith five years ago as a way to help support his niece, Faith, who was diagnosed with cancer.
Each year since, the annual 5K run and walk selects new children to support both emotionally and financially.
This year, three-year-old Eloise Lawrence and four-year-old Franky Campos are the beneficiaries of the event. Both were diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia a month apart.
Sunday's run and walk was a reminder for Franky and Eloise that thanks to the efforts of Stearns and Boise's Got Faith, they don't travel their road to recovery alone.
"This beautiful community coming together and supporting its own, these kids that have been diagnosed with cancer and helping them know they are not fighting it alone," Stearns said.
In five years, Boise's Got Faith has raised more than $210,000 through their fundraising efforts.
KTVB sports reporter Will Hall will take a closer look at the event in a special Sporting a Better Cause report Monday on the News at 10.
