The benefit included members of team News10NBC putting their feet down to help out.

Some of Saturdays crowd started the morning with a 5k run.

The event brought out local corporate sponsors as well as people with a more personal connection.   

"It's wonderful. It's really heartwarming. Going along and it seemed other people have survive, kids who are doing it, my kids are doing it. My husband is doing it. It's just really nice seeing everybody out here even though the weather is what it is in April," said Lisa Sultar a heart attack survivor. 

Notwithstanding cloudy, damp, chilly conditions, organizers estimate more than 4,000 pounded the pavement in downtown.

The 2018 Rochester Heart Walk and Run raised $760,000.
