Chocolate Run 5K in Statesboro for a great cause

Posted: Updated:

This weather may not have been the most inviting for a race, but plenty in the 'boro did for a good cause.

More than 500 of the 800 registered for the first ever chocolate run braved the weather in downtown Statesboro. The race benefitted the Open Hearts Mission that helps the homeless in Statesboro. It featured a kids race as well as a 5k. Leaders from Open Hearts Mission were amazed at the response.



"I am so proud to be from Statesboro Georgia today. I love Statesboro, but this has made me proud. They really stepped up," said Delia Mobley.

The 2013 Leadership Bulloch class organized the race and donated the 20 thousand dollars they raised to Open Hearts.
