ONALASKA, Wis. (WKBT) - Area athletes got the chance to run alongside area firefighters Saturday morning.

The Onalaska Fire Department hosted its seventh annual Fire House 5-K Run and Walk.

The event raises money for the Children's Miracle Network and over the years it has grown significantly.

A few firefighters even wore their heavy gear when running during the race.

Organizers say the race is a way to get the community active.

"If these guys can do it in their full gear than anybody can go out and run a race and it just promotes a healthy and active lifestyle," said Cory Taylor, a firefighter with the Onalaska Fire Department.

Over the last seven years, the community has raised over $21,000.
