Runners brave snow in Ugly Sweater 5K

Posted: Updated:

University of Dubuque student organization Delta Phi Sigma hosted an Ugly Sweater 5K Sunday morning. This is the first year the student organization has hosted the event.

More than 40 participants braved through the falling snow Sunday morning for the 5K.

Lauren Mahum is the president of Delta Phi Sigma at the University of Dubuque.

"We were expecting snow Sunday. I checked the forecast this week a couple of times and we were expecting some snow. But it looks nice and it's perfect for a Christmas sort of run," Mahum said.

All proceeds raised through the ugly sweater 5K benefit Dubuque's Toys for Tots Foundation. This year the race raised more than $1,000 for the foundation.
