VESTAL, N.Y. -

Every Wish Kid Needs a Hero. That was the theme of Saturday's 5k that brought out many people aiming to make those wishes come true. 

Binghamton University's Wishmakers on Campus held the "Walk/Run for Wishes 5k" at the school in efforts to support the Make-A-Wish foundation. 

Participants laced up and sported superhero costumes to compete in the 5k run or take a supportive stroll in the 5k walk. 

The event hosted in conjunction with Alpha Phi Omega and Kappa Sigma hoped to raise enough money to support the many wishes terminally ill children. 

The group surpassed their $8,000 goal that will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
