LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Most spend the day after Thanksgiving shopping on Black Friday, but several people in Louisville decided to burn off some of those Thanksgiving calories and help others at the same time.    

The "Run Run Rudolph 5K" helped kick off Friday's Light Up Louisville festivities.

Participants dealt with some chilly temperatures, but luckily there was not any rain to deal with.

Proceeds from the event benefit the Baptist Hospital Foundation and its patient care and wellness services.
