CHAMPAIGN -- It's not Halloween yet, but dozens dressed the part Saturday for a great cause. It was the first Annual Walk and Run for Wishes 5K.

More than 100 people showed up, dressed in their best costumes. They raised more than $27,000, helping one mother make her son Joshua's wish come true. Joshua will head to Las Vegas with his family soon to make his wish come true.
