Tonight, these West Fargo Elementary students were all business as they laced up their running shoes for the Fargo Marathon's youth run.

They are running for a very special cause. They raised 600-dollars for the charity: Alexa's Hope. The organization is named in memory of their principal's daughter Alexa Kersting.

The 14-year old died waiting for a lung transplant. Tonight, they ran with pride and taught us all a lesson in generosity in their cute green t-shirts.
