Ida Grove Event Raises Scholarship Money For Local Graduates

IDA GROVE, IA -

Ida Grove students soak up the sun while helping their classmates.

The 18th Annual Whitney Thompson Hike-Bike-A-Thon got more than 660 kids on the trail.

The event raises money for the OA-BCIG "Dollars For Scholars" program, which provides scholarships for graduating seniors.

To date, they've raised more than $68,000.

"It's awesome, it's all the work we put in behind the scenes, and everything we do kind of comes together on a beautiful day like today, and it's really rewarding to see this many kids, and the parents taking part, and the whole community just committed to the education of the kids," said event coordinator Marcia Cates. 

The runners and bikers, ranging from preschoolers to seniors, got pledges from family and friends.
