HUNTINGTON, WV -

Students at Marshall University were throwing strikes and splits Wednesday afternoon on Buskirk Field with turkeys.

All the fun and games are for a good cause. The money raised goes towards River Valley Child Development Services. Students we spoke to said this is a good way for students to contribute to the community while relieving stress.

One student involved with the event, Zachary Morris, says River Valley needs the support.

"River Valley provides scholarships for low income families to send their children to River Valley Child Development Services which is a curriculum based program for early childhood development. So, it's very important to raise money and awareness for them so that people can know about the services that they provide for the Huntington community," Morris said. 

The Marshall University Public Relations Club hosted the event.
