Pasta by the Park: Runners carb up for a good cause

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) — The annual Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon is taking over downtown Savannah in just a few hours, but earlier this evening runners had the chance to carb up.

Pasta by the Park is an annual event which helps raise money for Vascular Malformation research.

7-year-old Liam was the star of the event tonight. He was born with Lymphatic Malformation and has had to undergo numerous surgeries.

“There are so many kids that didn’t get funding for research and so forth,” says Janet Steffen with Liam’s Land, “So all the money raised here tonight goes to medical research grants.”

Tonight everyone filled their bellies and enjoyed live music — all for a good cause.
