Hundreds Brave the Cold Weather for Lynchburg's Resolution Run

Lynchburg Junior Woman's Club

Lynchburg, VA - The Boys and Girls Club of Lynchburg hosted its third annual Resolution Run Saturday afternoon.

Almost 300 people, including children from the Club, came out for the 2-mile walk or run downtown.

Before the race, kids got to play games inside the club. They had balloons, face painting and a bounce house.

Organizers say the goal of the event is to promote healthy living in the community.

The Lynchburg Junior Woman's Club sponsored the event, and members of the club "mugged" them before the race Saturday to thank them.

With sponsorships and race registration fees, the club hopes the event will raise almost $15,000.
