Wynnton United Methodist Church hosts 8th Annual Midtown Classic 5K and Fun Run

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Over 300 people turned out to participate in the 8th Annual Midtown Classic 5K and 1 mile Fun Run Saturday morning, April 26.

The run started and finished at Wynnton United Methodist Church in Midtown Columbus, Ga. Families also enjoyed food, live music, door prizes and awards.

Each year, the event raises money to benefit the Wynnton Neighborhood Network, and Wynnton Neighborhood Housing charities.

"Several churches in the community come together and we help people that qualify with power bills and groceries and clothing, and shoes, and you know, that kind of thing," says event organizer Hallie Taylor. "And the Wynnton Neighborhood Housing... home owners that qualify that need help with getting new roofs and patchwork done to their houses." 

Organizers predicted the event had raised $16,000 to donate to these charities.
