Runners pack streets for Irish Jig 5K

EAST GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Runners filled the streets of East Grand Rapids Saturday for the Spectrum Health Irish Jig 5K.

The race aims to promote awareness for colorectal cancer. Spectrum Health says it's the second-leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S., but is preventable.

The 5K course, certified by USA Track and Field, attracted more than 4,800 runners last year. Prizes went to the top age group winners and top overall finishers.
