HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - An annual fundraiser for the Downtown Rescue Mission is right around the corner and looking for more people to register.

The annual "Carts4Hearts" is a 5K around downtown Huntsville.  It's an imitation of the Iditarod, the famous Alaskan long-distance sled dog race.

"It's not done anywhere else in the South," said Tonia Beverly with the Mission. "It's a team of six people and a shopping cart."

Rain, shine or otherwise, the race will go on -- just to prove what some people go through every day.

"We may be uncomfortable for an hour, but people live in that weather year round," said Beverly.
