Heritage Run brings out hundreds to raise money for YMCA
ROCKFORD (WREX) -
Sunday was the perfect weather for a run, which is what many did in downtown Rockford at the YMCA Heritage Run.
"I love the word heritage, it's very fitting because it runs through historic downtown, runs through a whole lot of Rockford," said Andre Anthony, the Executive Director of Community Outreach for the YMCA.
Runners took their marks in downtown Rockford this afternoon for the 32nd annual Heritage Run. Runners could either do a 10K run or a 2 mile run, and there was also a Kids Fun Run.
More than 500 runners participated. The proceeds benefit the Big Brothers Big Sisters program, a program through the YMCA which provides children with positive mentors.
