WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Runners can take off from Legion Stadium Saturday, December 8, 2012, to honor the life of Dr. William Craig. Craig lost his battle with Leukemia years ago, but his fight to help local charities continues.
The YMCA "Girls on the Run" and "STRIDE" will both benefit from this weekend's run.
The two groups are designed to keep kids moving and get them running down the right path in life by making healthy decisions.
Amber Rogers represented the groups while chatting with "Good Morning Carolina" anchor Ashley Jacobs and Bobby Campbell shared stories of his encounters with Craig.
