There's still time to help a local company send sick children to summer camp.

The A&F Challenge has raised more than $10 million since it was started in 2001 by New Albany-based retailer Abercrombie & Fitch Co. This year, proceeds will go to SeriousFun Children's Network, a network of programs founded by actor Paul Newman where children with serious illnesses can attend a week of summer camp at no cost.

The A&F Challenge includes a 5K run/walk, a fun run, a Camp Fitch kids' area, live music featuring Bleachers, X Ambassadors and CAAMP, and food and drink from local merchants.

The event will be held from 5 to 11 p.m. Sept. 9 at Abercrombie & Fitch headquarters, 6301 Fitch Path, New Albany. For more information, go to anfchallenge.org.
