UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS (WCIA) — Runners laced up their shoes to help the Armed Forces. Illini Veterans had its 7th Annual 5K Run. Over the years the group has raised $68,000. 

The money is used for the Chez Center for Veterans on campus. In the past the money has been used for academic and research purposes. This year they hope to use some of the money to upgrade the kitchen.
