The 15th annual Happy Camper Scamper to benefit Camp Quality is happening tomorrow at Bartlett Park in St. Joseph.

Joetown 107.5's Gregg Lynn who hosts the annual 5k, says this event is really the kickoff to raising money for Camp Quality.

"We'll raise anywhere from $1,500 to $4,000 with this event and then go right into the Radio-a-thon in the spring," Lynn tells KFEQ/St. Joseph Post. "And hopefully you know with this event included we normally raise between $20,000 and $25,000 for camp every year, which costs over $100, about $150 per camper, to send them to Camp Quality."

The 3.1-mile walk, or run will begin on Saturday at 9am. You can still sign up for the event up until the start time on Saturday.

Lynn says it's been difficult to get participants this year for various reasons.

"In the past we'd always done it Father's Day weekend which people, a lot like a turkey trot on Thanksgiving where people kind of make a family thing about it, well they were doing that for Father's Day weekend also, but unfortunately we couldn't do it Father's Day weekend," Lynn says. "But yeah, so our numbers a little down, we sure could use some walkers and runners on Saturday."
