In the midst of the Sidewalk Days frenzy, the Duluth YMCA held its 7th Annual Sidewalk Shuffle on Wednesday.

Proceeds from the 5K go toward the YMCA's Annual Support Campaign, which raises funds for membership scholarships. More than 430 runners participated in the 2014 run along the Lakewalk.

In 2013, the Y gave out $317,000 in scholarships, and an additional $28,000 to help more than 200 kids go to camp.
