MADISON (WKOW) -- Hundreds gathered Monday to participate in Madison's only Labor Day fun run, all for a good cause.
The proceeds from the event go to Safe Harbor Child Advocacy Center in Madison. The day included walks and runs for all ages, including a "Tot Trot", which was for kids up to eight years old.
Organizers say they are thrilled with the amount of people who turned up. They say without the community they couldn't keep their doors open.
"We have it on Labor Day every year. And we are just so grateful for the tremendous community support. To come out and support this event every year and they get to run through the beautiful Arboretum and start and stop here at beautiful Vilas Parks," said Jennifer Ginsburg, program manager at Safe Harbor.
Ginsburg said they hold three fundraisers every year, including the Run/Walk. She said they hoped to raise more than $20,000 from Monday's event.
Safe Harbor is a safe place for child abuse victims to talk about their experiences.
