WILKES-BARRE -- The fourth annual Wendy's Wonderful Kids Family Fitness Festival kicked off Friday on the River Commons and continued Saturday afternoon in Luzerne county.

The mission of the event every year is to raise awareness about children in the community who need families.

About 1,000 people came together to run the 5-k. There was also other athletic events and representatives from adoption agencies giving out information.

An organizer says people come from all over the country to support the cause that benefits adoption and foster care.
