(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The 5K Run/Walk with the Huskies held Saturday in St. Joseph raised money for people with developmental disabilities.

About 400 people attended the event at Phil Welch Stadium. The 5K raises money for students attending the Helen Davis School. The School supports students between 5 and 21 with significant developmental disabilities in St. Joseph and surrounding areas.

"All the, the money raised we raised for this event stays local and supports students here in St. Joseph and we have some students in northwest Missouri," Coordinator at Helen Davis Jennifer Burns said. "So it all stays local and supports students directly at the school."

This is the only fundraiser the school holds each year and the goal of the event was to raise between $8,000 and $10,000.
