McMurry University students held a 5K run Saturday morning to benefit The Lauren Bump Foundation.

Lauren Bump graduated from McMurry in 2010 and was murdered at a park in San Antonio on New Year's Eve. Each year the McMurry Student Government hold "Spring Thing" activities that bring students and faculty together. Saturday was the BIG Event which raised money for the foundation.

"What happened to Lauren Bump was awful," Autumn Patterson, a student said. "She was involved in a lot of activities and donating to her foundation was the only thing that came to mind."

Running was considered Bumps' favorite past time activity.
