5K help children who have been abused

AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - A group working to help children who have been abused was the reason why this group laced up their shoes and hit the ground running, early Saturday morning.

Around 50 runners participated in this years "Hot Blooded" 5-k and 10k run which was hosted by Get Fit in Amarillo.

While participants did their best to win the race, organizers say the real winners are the children who will benefit from Saturday's event.  

"I feel like as a local business if we can give back to our local community, then its a win win for everybody, and the kids are really the ones that win. These dollars help The Bridge, that help the children,"organizerr and Get Fit owner Karen Roberts said.  

The Bridge was the state's first children's advocacy center. It opened it's doors in 1989 and has developed a one-stop approach to child abuse investigation.
