One challenging competition brought our community together Saturday morning.

The Wounded Warrior 10K race attracted hundreds to Point Park.

People of all ages gathered starting at 8 a.m., all to support each other.

The course took runners throughout downtown Parkersburg.

One Vietnam veteran says he watched with pride.

His family came out to run in his honor.

"Whatever we can do to support our soldiers coming home, we try to do it. To support the people who protect our country, and keep us safe and sound, we try to do," says Larry Cottrill.

"Whenever my dad explained about a 10K, I've wanted to do one. So he brought me to this one," says Katie Cottrill.

More than $3,000 was raised.

All proceeds will support local veterans of foreign wars.
