PEORIA - This is the first year Goodwill has put on "Forward March and Run".
PEORIA - Area runners laced up their shoes and competed in downtown Peoria Saturday to help local veterans.

This is the first year Goodwill has put on the Forward March and Run.

It was split in to three races - a four and eight mile run, and a one mile march - giving people from all fitness levels a chance to participate.

All the money raised will go to veteran services put on by Goodwill.

CEO Patty Fuchs said, "We work with veterans in lots of different ways and really enjoy thanking them, helping them in any way they can."

Goodwill hopes to raise 60,000 dollars from Saturday's events.
