HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Hundreds of runners hit the wet streets of Hattiesburg Saturday morning to raise money for the Arc of Southeast Mississippi.

They participated in the seventh annual Rise & Shine Half Marathon.

It was hosted by Hattiesburg Clinic.

The half-marathon and a separate 5K were held in a light, but steady rain.

Organizers said previous races have raised about $100,000 for the Rise & Shine adult program at the Arc.
