LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -The Leadership Jones County organization hosted a first-ever downtown run Saturday morning, to raise money to help revitalize a historic city park.

The “Cupid Shuffle-a-Thon” was held as a fundraiser for Boston Park.

The Jones County Dream Builders, which is part of Leadership Jones County, is currently working on the park.

“We’re repaving the basketball court as one of the main things that we’re doing,” said Lorin Pugh, a Leadership Jones County team member. “We’re also painting the different benches and things there, we’re also helping to clean up the park itself.”

Pugh said the park revitalization should be finished in May.
