Fleeing Felon obstacle course raises money for Children's Hospital

INDEPENDENCE, KY (FOX19) - Residents of Northern Kentucky channeled their inner "felon" today, in an obstacle course designed to raise money for a good cause.

The Fleeing Felon Run was sponsored by the Independence, Ky FOP lodge #75. The course was made up of eight obstacles over a distance of more than a mile.

Everyone over the age of 13 was invited to participate, with a portion of the proceeds being donated to Children's Hospital.

"Felons" were sent off in groups of 10 every 10 minutes. At the end, instead of jail time, participants got a spaghetti dinner and t-shirt.
