Many run for a good cause


Across from the Biloxi City Hall Saturday morning more than 200 runners lined up to begin their race through downtown Biloxi.

The 29th annual Mayor's cup 5k and one mile run/walk has brought more runners than ever before. The run is sponsored by the city of Biloxi and Mayor A.J. Holloway. It's put on by Gulf Coast Running club. 

All proceeds go to Gulf Coast running club to help fund future events and add to their scholarship fund. Every year the club awards several scholarships to graduating high school students.. 

At the end of the race, awards will be given to the top three male and female finishers.
