OLYPHANT -- Some people in Lackawanna County got in a good workout while helping families in need.

Dozens of people turned up to CrossFit Vertex Saturday afternoon to do some high intensity exercise as the facility hosted a 12 Days of Christmas workout event.

In order to participate, people just needed to donate a toy to Toys For Tots.

"Despite the weather, they still put on a great event. They still came out and supported the cause. That's awesome," said Paige Semenza of Pittson.

Even with the slushy weather, the people at CrossFit Vertex said that people from all over the area came to participate.
