Kelly's Hold Annual Fun Run

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

 

It was a cold St. Patrick's Day today, but that wouldn't stop people from coming out to join in the annual Kelly's Fun Run.

Nearly 400 runners and walkers were off this morning to help raise money for the Quincy YWCA. All of the fund raised from today's run go to help local homeless. 

Organizers says events like this help build morale.

"It is very important for the homeless people in the community know that people care enough to get up on a chilly day like this and come run, not just to have fun, but to help them stay housed," said YWCA Executive Director Mary Muehlenfeld.

She said  today was the highest attendance for the event ever, and she hopes to raise $7,000.
