Mountaineer Maniacs Host Ryan's Rally 5k Run and Walk

In 2009, Ryan Diviney was brutally beaten by strangers over a World Series Baseball argument and has been in a coma-like state ever since.

West Virginia University students are constantly trying to help out fellow Mountaineers and they did the same for Diviney.

The Mountaineer Maniacs hosted Ryan's Rally 5k on Saturday morning to help put a dent in the Diviney families medical costs.

Exactly 200 runners participated and the Maniacs raised more than $3,000 before the race had even ended.

Papa John's and Qdoba in Morgantown also donated some of their proceeds to the family on the day of the run if people mentioned Ryan's Rally.
