Sweat for Vets run connects students with veterans

Indiana University South Bend hosted its first ever Sweat for Vets 5K run Saturday morning.

The race was organized by the Student Veteran's Organization (SVO), which is made up of students formerly involved in military service.

They wanted to raise $5,000 to donate to Miller's Vets, a local not-for-profit that helps homeless veterans in St. Joe County.

16 Saturday Morning was live before the 5K started to talk to supporters and veterans before they took their first steps in the race.

To donate to Miller's Vets or find out more information about the organization, just head to the Big Red Bar.
