Kernersville, NC -- Hundreds of runners raised money and fought the good fight with their feet at a race for a good cause Saturday morning.
The 3rd Annual Walk 4 Our Kids 5K Walk/Run raised money to benefit the Kids of Childhood Cancer Foundation.
Sarah and Charlie DiGerolamo founded Kids of Childhood Cancer to help other families when their son Vinny was fighting the disease. WFMY News 2 has followed Vinny's journey over the years. He was a brave fighter who lost his five-year battle with cancer in February at the age of 9.
Saturday's 5K was successful, according to the Walk 4 Our Kids website. Walkers and runners raised $46,650 for the foundation!
And, with Mother's Day just a few hours away, race organizers recognized mothers who have lost their children to cancer with a special tribute.
