Bronx residents hit the streets to raise money for community group

A group of Bronx residents walked the streets Sunday to raise money for the Aisling Irish Community Center.

Gloomy skies didn?t stop Bronx residents of all ages for the third annual 5K walk. The fundraiser helps the non-profit Irish group, which offers social service programs, computer training and parenting classes. The group opened in 1996 as a center for Irish immigrants and eventually expanded its services to all Bronx residents.

The Aisling Irish Community Center raised approximately $10,000 for the center at last year?s walk. Officials say they hope this year is as successful.
