A farm house and barn located in the Willow Point neighborhood faced major flooding, which occurred days earlier in Ashland, Nebraska, on Thursday, March 21, 2019. 

Two Lincoln running groups have teamed up to host a run benefiting flood relief efforts in the state.

The Nebraska Strong Run, organized by the Lincoln Track Club and the Lincoln Running Company, is Sunday.

Profits from the event will go to a matching fund at First National Bank through the Nebraska Community Foundation, said Ann Ringlein, manager of the Lincoln Running Company. Some profits will also go to the Salvation Army.

Ringlein said they hope to raise $30,000. 

"This is just to get together and really support Nebraska," Ringlein said.

The cost is $30. Additional donations are welcome.

Runners will meet at the Jayne Snyder Trail Center, 228 N. 21st St. in Lincoln, at 2 p.m. Participants can run the trail for 2.5 miles to 6.5 miles. 

Those who aren't in Lincoln can sign up for a virtual option or make a donation.
