3rd annual Run for Shelter 5K helps the homeless of the CSRA

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Nearly 150 runners and some walkers of all ages took off Saturday morning in the Augusta Common, for the third annual Run for Shelter 5K.

The run benefits the Augusta Rescue Mission, which provides a rehabilitation program for homeless men in the CSRA.

"We tried to make a difference in men's lives," said Rusty Marsh, executive director for the Augusta Rescue Mission. "We have a year long program. It's a jobs program with 32 percent success rate on getting men jobs; getting them reintroduced back out into the community with jobs and housing. That's what we do. We rebuild lives."

All proceeds made from the run go directly to support the Augusta Rescue Mission.
