Chicago hosted the 30th annual United Negro College Fund Walk for Education Saturday afternoon.

The 10k Walk and Fun Run stepped off from Burnham Park at 39th and South Lake Shore Drive.

Organizers say money raised supports more than 60,000 students a year, builds a more diverse workforce, and strengthens the community.

UNCF was hoping to raise $200,000 with the event.
