Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 09:18 PM EDT
Before they left for the summer, students at AC Reynolds pounded the pavement to be a part of a school wide effort to give back to the community.
And the kids turned out in record numbers!
Students at AC Reynolds Middle School are taking part in a 5k fun run on campus.
Students made a $10 pledge or more before the event began.
50 percent of the profits will go to the school to improve it's security system.
The other half will be donated to the Western North Carolina Nature Center.
Participates say it's a win-win for everyone.
The money helps the community and the exercise helps them!
Over 250 students took part in the 5k race, raising more than $3100.
