"Laugh-and-a-Half-Marathon" picked as top in the state of Nebraska


NORFOLK, Neb. (KTIV/US92) - An annual event in northeast Nebraska is being recognized as the best of its kind in the state.

Travel website Trip Advisor recently named the "Laugh-and-a-Half-Marathon" in Norfolk as the top marathon worth traveling for in Nebraska.

The annual event is put on by Norfolk radio station 94 Rock and Faith Regional Health Services.

Proceeds from the event help support various pediatric needs in northeast Nebraska.

Officials with Faith Regional say the national recognition is especially gratifying for the hundreds of volunteers that help with the race every year.

Tim Auwarter, Faith Regional Interim CEO says, "We get constant comments coming back to us throughout the year about what a wonderful event it was and how great a job the volunteers did. I think that speaks volumes."

The 2014 Laugh and a Half Marathon will be held in Norfolk on June 14, 2014.
