Many People hit the pavement at Spencer Park for the "Great Strides" 5K. The largest fundraiser for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
"I think it's really important because the money that we raise and raising awareness for cystic fibrosis can improve the quality of his life and hopefully help find a cure," said participant Lauren Mulder.
More than 125 thousand people around the country participated in a Great Stride Walk this year. All working to raise money and awareness in the search for a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. Saturday's fundraiser is especially important to local families whom have loved ones dealing with Cystic Fibrosis.
