(ST. JOSEPH, Mo) The St. Joseph YMCA hosted it's annual Parkway Run bright and early at 8:30 am Saturday Morning. 
Runners (or walkers) chose between a 5k or a 15k, both routes ending right in front of Benton High School.
Sue White, the CEO of the local Y said this event is a great way to build community while also giving to a good cause.

"The proceeds of this race go toward charitable efforts of the YMCA of St. Joseph Missouri and Special Olympics Missouri," White said.  "[They are] two great causes that help us reach out in our community and do great things."

Mosaic Life Care along with Show-Me Running Co. sponsored today's running event.
