CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla.- More than 1300 people got down and dirty for a good cause Saturday. They participated in a mud run to benefit the Golisano Children's Hospital of Southwest Florida.
Local couple Dustin Edwards and Stephanie Ink-Edwards are hosting the inaugural South Florida mud run to help a hospital that helped their family. Both of their children were in the hospital's NICU because of health complications, and this is their way of giving back.
The participants will go through a 3-mile obstacle course, complete with mud, climbing walls, and much more.
There are also fun runs for kids.
All of the proceeds from the event will benefit the hospital.
