Florida Atlantic University hosts third annual Embrace 5K Walk/Run

Hundreds walked, ran, rolled and strolled their way across the finish line at the third annual Embrace 5K in Boca Raton.

Florida Atlantic University's campus transformed into a course in an effort to raise funds for the Stand Among Friends organization.

The nearly 20-year-old organization works with people with disabilities to help them gain employment.   

Mary Jane Saunders, president of FAU, said the job market is tough but even more tough for those with disabilities.

"The organization helps make it easier for them and this event is their biggest fundraiser," she said.
