AMARILLO -- Amarillo High School needs your help to kick off its 20-14 cross country season. 

The AHS 5K and Fun Run is next Saturday at Thompson Park.

It's the cross country team's only fundraiser of the year.

The money goes toward things like shoes and jerseys.

Senior Copeland James says it also helps fund special trips not normally paid for by the school.  

It kicks off at 8:30 a.m.
