PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — People laced up their sneakers early Sunday morning to run a 10k for Haiti. The owner of Spm Fitness Lion’s Den in Fishtown organized the run to help Haitian families and children recovering from the most recent earthquake.

The gym is partnering with a church in Haiti.

The funds will go to helping pay for kids’ schooling, as well as feeding families.

The goal is to raise $15,000, which the gym said translates to more than$100,000 in Haitian currency.
