A lot of people were working out Saturday for a great cause.
Firebreather Fitness in St. Albans hosted fundraiser for Baskets of Hope.
Money raised will go toward buying toys to replenish the charity's supply.
Baskets of Hope puts together toys and other items for kids with cancer.
The organization lost a lot of the items used for those baskets this summer, when a storage facility where they were being kept was broken into this and the toys stolen.
Even after all of that, the group stands by its message of hope.
"Create some awareness for childhood cancer,” organizer Chris Massey said. “Raise a little money for our charity and just have a good time, have a good workout. We got an awesome turn out and we look forward to finishing strong."
Some of the items up for bidding during the silent auction were vacation packages, fitness gear and some autographed NFL items.
