DULUTH, MN -- The 13th annual Breezy Point 5K was held in Duluth Saturday to raise money and awareness for Minnesota Adult and Teen Challenge.

Funds from the 5K help make long-term programming available to people coming to the drug and alcohol treatment and recovery program who do not have the means to pay.

Last year, they raised more than $60,000.

This year, the event had a record-breaking attendance of more than 400 participants.

"This 5K has been going on for 13 years, and every dime that's raised comes directly to our Duluth campus in the Northland here," Brandon Torgerson with Minnesota Adult and Teen Challenge said. "We use that for our general operating, and it helps men find freedom from addiction."

For thirteen years, the race has started on Steve and Sandy Paulson’s driveway.

They host the event each year with the goal of helping someone who is struggling with addiction.
