More than 7,000 runners helped raise money to benefit Chicago Cubs charities and Children's Memorial Hospital Saturday morning by taking part in the 7th Annual Race to Wrigley preseneted by AthletiCo.

The race began under the Wrigley Field marquee and went through the Lakeview neighborhood and inside the Wrigley Field concourse before finishing at the corner of Clark and Addison.

The annual Race to Wrigley has become one of the most popular 5K runs in Chicago, Mike Lufrano, Cubs executive vice president of community affairs said in a statement. These contributions help the race support so many in need throughout the Chicago area.

The top fundraising teams were Team Teddi and Silver Fox 9. Ryan Hopper claimed the men's fastest time at 16:04, while Pam Staton took home the top female overall time at 18:03.
