GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

In between Saturday's raindrops, more than 150 people participated in the MS Walk for Diabetes.

The sun popped out just as children cut a ribbon and started a one-mile walk around Jones Park. The walkers all have friends of family members who deal with diabetes, giving them a personal stake in the fundraising event.

Organizers say the walk around the park raised $15,000. That money goes toward diabetes patient assistance, children's programs and education for kids and adults with diabetes.
