PERRYSBURG, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Runners, walkers and lovers of dance came together in Levis Commons in Perrysburg early Saturday morning for a unique 5K event.

Dance Dash combines dancing with running/walking throughout a 5K race, with funds raised benefiting the Children's Miracle Network. At each kilometer, participants stop the race to learn a new dance move. At the finish line, everyone comes together to join a giant flash mob, utilizing the routines they learned along the race route.

Organizers with Dance Dash spoke about this year's event on 'Your Morning Saturday,' with Crystal Clark and Kimberly Newman.
