LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - While the humanitarian crisis in Syria continues, a group of Louisvillians is working hard to raise awareness. 

Hundreds turned out in Cherokee Park Saturday for The Race for Syrian Children 5-K. The race raised money for UNICEF’S Syrian Children in Crisis Fund which provides vaccines and supplies to children in Syrian refugee camps.

 

Organizers said they’re trying to provide some sort of tangible good in the face of senseless tragedy.
