Anniston Ave. Elementary students run for fun, fundraising

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - The children at Anniston Avenue Elementary School in Gulfport put their stamina to the test Wednesday. They participated in the school's annual Fun Run.

Every time they completed a lap, they raised money for the school's Parent Teacher Organization. Gulfport High School athletes and cheerleaders led the youngsters around the track.

The PTO expected to raise $20,000 from this 32 lap event. That money will pay for a new playground behind the Anniston campus.
