SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Some dads spent Father's Day morning helping mothers in need.

Runners were out early Sunday morning in Daffin Park to participate in the "Fathers Helping Mothers" Father's Day Run.

The event was a one-mile walk/run and 5k walk/run to benefit mothers in the community who have difficulties making it to doctor appointments or trips to the grocery store.

Michael Leachman, President of "Fathers Helping Mothers," told WTOC this event will help the organization reach their goal of purchasing a van, so they are able to provide transportation for those in need.

Each runner received a trophy and t-shirt for their participation.
