Fleet Feet New Year's Day Dash


MIDDLETON (WKOW) -- Hundreds of runners braved the chilly weather this morning for a good cause.

The eighth annual Fleet Feet New Year's Day Dash in Middleton raises money to fight Huntington's disease.

Despite the cold, runners had some fun with it. Organizers say even in the frigid weather, it's not so bad.

"I think all of the runners were expecting a cold day," says Shana Martin. "I mean, if you sign up for a race in January you have to expect a cold, snowy and wintry day, but it's really a fun way to start off the New Year. Once you get moving you feel fine."

Runners took on a five-mile run. A portion of the proceeds benefit the Huntington's Disease society of America.
