The Lansing Board of Water & Light held it's fourth annual BWL Hometown Power 5K race on Saturday.
All proceeds for the event go to Pennies for Power, a fund that helps families who need help paying their utility bills.
The 5K started at the Customer Service Center and followed the Lansing River Trail.
Pennies for Power is funded by the Hometown Power 5k, as well as customer donations, made by rounding up utility bills to the nearest whole dollar, or rounding up to the nearest dollar, then adding another dollar.
Each customer receives a statement in January of their total contribution, and it can be used for taxes.
