Posted: Updated:
UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS -
More than a thousand residents laced up their sneakers and participated in an annual run at Bronx Community College Saturday.
 
New York City's second oldest footrace, "Run the Bronx," helps to raise scholarship funds for the school.
 
The race also served as a way to promote health and wellness in the borough. 
 
Students from kindergarten through 12th grade and all SUNY college students didn't have to pay a registration fee.
 
Health organizations were also on hand to give advice and to test blood pressure and cholesterol.
