United Cerebral Palsy

FRESNO, CALIFORNIA (CBS 47) - More than five hundred people strapped on their running shoes for a good cause Saturday.

The 32nd Annual Brian Sturgeon St. Patrick's Day Run kicked off on Saturday.

The event raises money to benefit United Cerebral Palsy.

Organizers hoped to raise at least $20,000 to help support the more than 700 people with disabilities in the valley.

Jeff Snyder, an event participant says, "we have the children's run first thing in the morning which is always fun. It's the fun run. And then we have the two mile walk and run. And then we have the four mile run."

The runs took place Saturday morning at Woodward Park.
