QND run helps support school programs

Despite the heat and humidity, walkers and runners really went the distance Saturday.

The 12th Annual Raider Classic was held Saturday morning in Quincy.

The 5K and 10K race began and ended at Quincy Notre Dame High School, with a trail that led participants through two different parks.

This fundraiser supports the Notre Dame Cross Country program, as well as other sports and fine arts organizations at the school.

Around three hundred participants came out for the race, and event organizers couldn't be happier.

There was also a one mile fun run for youth under the age of 13 who weren't quite ready for the 5K or 10K events.
