ELEVA, Wis Hundreds of people laced up their running shoes for the 3rd annual Chicken Chase in honor of Zayvier Barnes Saturday. Zayvier was killed in a car crash in 2012 at the age of 9.

Saturday runners and walkers took part in a 5 and 10k race to help raise money for a playground at his Eleva elementary school. It will have a plaque in his honor.

Zavier’s friends and family say he was an active and giving kid so it's fitting to run and play in his memory.

"For us this is what our son stood for. He would always support other people and support good causes and was giving and kind to others. So to have so many people come out to support us is very meaningful, “ said Graham Barnes, Zayvier’s dad.
