Children's Hospital Central California is getting a big boost from hundreds of runners.

The Red Balloon Race started and ended at Fresno's Fig Garden Shopping Center today.

Action news was there as George the Giraffe presented medals to participants of all ages. The 5k run-walk raises money to support children's health by benefitting the hospital.

Each of the racers received a red balloon and could buy extra ones for a $10 donation.
