(FOX19) - Sunday morning hundreds of people laced up their running shoes "Honoring Our Heroes."

This first-time Kroger-sponsored 5K event benefits local veterans' organizations like the Joseph House and the Cincinnati Chapter of Gold Star Mothers.

The event was the brain child of several Kroger associates looking to pay tribute to their hometown heroes.
