Riverside resident Brian Frazier ran 50 miles on a treadmill in the lobby of the Pav YMCA in Berwyn on Feb. 4 in order to raise money to sponsor children through World Vision's Christian community development programs.

Frazier's effort raised enough money to sponsor 14 children through World Vision, which according to its website is "a Christian relief and development organization assisting 70 million people each year in its quest to end poverty, fight hunger and transform lives."

Sponsoring a child through World Vision, the organization states, "means that children, families, and communities have a sustainable, comprehensive plan for a bright future. Clean water keeps children healthy and allows crops to grow. Nourishing food and life-saving healthcare help children stay in school. Education lifts entire families out of poverty. Economic efforts create jobs and secure futures. The love of God brings hope and spiritual transformation."
