The Circle of Love organization held a '5K for the Kids' Sunday morning at Tropical Park. 

All of the money raised at the event is donated to different organizations that aim to help kids with cancer, organizers said.

The Circle of Love Fund was founded by Shelly Roberts. In 2005, Roberts was diagnosed with lung cancer and struggled to afford the high cost of treatment. Roberts created the Circle of Love to raise money for cancer patients and their families.

The Circle of Love Fun is in partnership with the Coral Gables Community Foundation.
