The weather did not interfere with Saturday morning's "Hog Jog" through Bricktown.

Runners hit the street as part of Swine Week, an effort by Edmond Memorial High School students to raise $350,000 for the Limbs for Life foundation. The non-profit provides financial help for prosthetic limbs for amputees around the world and is based here in OKC.

"Whenever little boys are crossing the finish line with their prosthetic and you know they're beating grown men, so it's just awesome to come out and just be one in the community," said Hot Jog coordinator, Jade George.

More than 400 runners took part, including News 9's Alex Cameron and his wife Ann. Saturday's Hog Jog raised more than $13,000 towards their goal.

You can donate $10 by texting SWINE to 20222.
