Danville, VA- The 11th annual "Run for Justice" was held on Saturday morning out at Angler's Park in Danville.
The run is an annual fundraiser for Danville Community College's Justice Club, and its Law Enforcement program.
All ages got to take part in numerous categories.
The post-race activities included refreshments, door prize drawings and an awards ceremony.
One runner won the 10k Master's Division, even after stopping to help out another runner.
"When he went down that was my job and duty to help him, to at least try and help him get up. And you know he's doing better. The ambulance was called and paramedics did look at him, but he is on his way home," said Jay Jones, a Principal in Forsyth County, NC.
"In High School I raced a lot, I haven't raced in about a year though, and ya know - I started itching to race again so I decided to come on out," said Josiah Slaydon, a Liberty University Student.
An enormous amount of sponsors took part in making today's race a reality.
Runners and walkers took in the scenic river walk trail and received a free T-shirt for their effort.
