SUNRISE, FLA. (WSVN) - South Floridians laced up their sneakers and headed to Sunrise this weekend to walk or run for a good cause.

The 14th Annual Walk for Wishes 5K Walk/Run was held Saturday at Markham Park, located at 16001 West State Road 84.

Participants hit the ground running alongside friends and family.

Walk for Wishes is a nationwide Make-A-Wish fundraiser that helps the organization grant wishes for children with critical illnesses.

“It brings a lot of hope that they’re able to do this for a lot of kids,” said participant Jason Renfro, whose daughter had neuroblastoma. “Our experience was amazing; it had no hiccups or anything. It was amazing, it was great, so, to do this for other kids just makes you feel good.”

WSVN was a proud sponsor of the race. 7Weather meteorologist Vivian Gonzalez also took part in the annual event.
