LAUREL, MS (WLBT)- Participants in the 5th Annual South Central Classic gathered in downtown Laurel. It was a 5-k walk and run, which raised money for the American Heart Association.
"Five years ago, we started out with about 50 or 60 runners. Every year, it's gradually crept up to about 80, 90. Last year, we had a little over a hundred. This year I think we have 120 to 150 runners and walkers out here. So, it's really grown", said Race Director, Justin Bynum.
The event was held in conjunction with a breast cancer awareness walk.
