Pack your bags and throw on those kicks...that's what 25 kids were doing Saturday morning.

The kids received camp certificates and new Shaquille O'Neal "Dunkman" shoes from the "Run for a Reason" organization. They have also been sponsored to attend Bob Chipman's full day basketball camp at Washburn University this summer.

The 1st annual "Run for a Reason" charity held this past October is what made it possible. The proceeds from that event are sending the 25 boys and girls from the Abbott Community Center to the basketball camp in June.

"Run for a reason is" a tTopeka Community Charity formed by the Topeka Collegiate School to promote fitness and philanthropy.
