MOBILE, Ala. (WALA ) - Panther pride is taking to the streets Saturday morning. Murphy High School's annual fundraiser is more important than ever, after a tornado Christmas Day, changed everything.
One of Mobile County's biggest high schools is also known for its large following. It's called panther pride, and there will be plenty come Saturday.
"The money goes directly to the teachers and students all proceeds it goes to benefit academic instructional tools in the classroom," said Travis Ritchie with the Murphy PTSA.
The Panther Pride 5K is held to raise funds for teacher's supply needs, but this year, those funds will help more than just that.
The school suffered millions in damages after a tornado hit it Christmas Day. Every dollar counts, and every dollar is a step closer to getting Murphy back the way it was.
"The teachers have been very supportive with the run this year, they've been great to get the word out, send emails, make telephone calls , this is the least we can do," said Ritchie.
Ritchie said there's only one big change.
"The run is usually at Murphy but this year with the damage that was caused we've had to relocate downtown to Spanish Plaza," he said.
Ritchie said the pre-registration turnout has been good, and they can't wait to see everyone who comes out tomorrow.
If you want to participate in the 5K, you still can. Final registration is Saturday morning starting at 7:30 with the race beginning at 8:30.
