EUGENE, Ore. -- Hundreds braced the cold Sunday morning to participate in a "run to stay warm". The annual race is put on by EWEB to raise money for their customer care program.

The money raised goes to their Customer Care Program, a designed to help alleviate the financial stress for their low-income EWEB customers while also helping them keep warm.

Jen Connor, a spokeswoman for EWEB said utility bills tend to go up during the winter, sometimes making it financially difficult on some of their customers.

She said in the past ten years this event has raised a total of more than $200,000 dollars for the Customer Care Program.

"We had over a thousand runners register for the race this year and we've got dozens of volunteers here as well so I think we're well over 1200 people out here strong supporting the run to stay warm," said Connor.

Connor said participants and volunteers enjoy participating in the race and giving to the cause. She said this year they had a great turn out.
