BLOOMINGTON, Ill. -- It was a breakfast of champions this weekend in Bloomington.

Thousands of pancakes were cooked up as part of the annual Bloomington Kiwanis Pancake Days.

For a small price you could get unlimited pancakes and sausage all for a good cause.

The money is used to send underprivileged kids to camp.

And even after 60 years, the community support is still going strong.

"It's really a tradition here in Bloomington-Normal and the community has always rallied around it and helped support it. They know that we're taking the money to help young kids," said Marty Hickman, Chairman of the Pancake days.

It takes the help of more than 100 volunteers to serve the thousands of people that show up every year.
