MADISON, AL (WAFF) -
A couple hundred runners helped feed the hungry and the homeless Saturday morning.
The Downtown Rescue Mission held its second annual Run to Rescue 5k at Bob Jones High School in Madison. The event raised money to help the mission feed homeless men, women and children throughout the Tennessee Valley. Fifteen of the runners were people the mission helps.
"We've had about 215 people come out this year. That 215 people is going to serve about 2,000 meals at the mission this year because of this event, which is a great thing," said Keith Overholt, President and CEO of the Downtown Rescue Mission.
Churches and area businesses sponsored the event. Organizers said because of that, every dollar raised will go straight to the mission.
