HOBOKEN - The last thing many people want to do on a hot day is run outside, but scorching temperatures failed to deter hundreds of people from hitting the pavement for a good cause in Hoboken.

A Kids' Fun Run took place today at 4:30 p.m., and the Party With Purpose 5K Run was held on Pier A in Hoboken.

In an effort to stay cool, some of the runners and spectators brought along water guns to the outdoor fundraising event that featured fun activities for adults and children alike.
