Runners raise money for children of fallen military members

Some local runners laced up to raise money and awareness for service members who made the ultimate sacrifice.



The runners participated in an 8-mile leg of the multistate "500 for the Fallen" run, which made its way to New Rochelle on Saturday.



"Enjoy your blanket of freedom that these men and women provided for you, but take a moment to remember them," said Bernice Margiolis, of Tarrytown.



The run raised scholarship money for the children of fallen service members. 



The relay began in Concord, Massachusetts, and ended Monday at Arlington National Cemetery, outside of Washington, D.C.
