Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV) - Many people took advantage of Saturday morning's clear weather and came together for a good cause in Grand Forks.

The 2014 Sunshine Fest took place at the Ralph Engelstad Arena; the festivities included a 5K outdoor fun run and a 3K indoor walk.

The event raised funds for a woman who passed away in 2007 from heat stroke.

Donovan Larson/Sunshine Memorial Foundation: “Sunshine fest is all about community caring and helping others. That's what sunshine fest is all about. We started it in honor of my sister Shannon, her nickname was sunshine. And she was a caring and helpful person. And so that's what this is all about, community helping.”

All proceeds for today's event go towards the foundation's efforts to build a hospitality home for families and patients traveling for healthcare.
