KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Dozens of people gathered at Kauffman Stadium on Saturday for a 5k through 10k run/walk.

The Royals Charities brought in almost 1,000 people to run.

What is different about this race than others is that people got to run or walk inside The K.

While the race is fun, it's also benefiting Royals Charities.

"Royals Charities benefits our four pillars: children, baseball and softball, education and military families," Angel McGee, manager of community partnerships and events for the Kansas City Royals said. "An abundance of organizations we support in the community is why the proceeds of this race will directly help them from our Royals Charities."
