KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Sunday morning, several hundred couples dressed in bridal veils and tutus to support a local non-profit.

Megan Snow is the Founder and Race Director of the 5K Wedding Run. She said planning for the big day can sometimes be anything but a dream.

Sunday, brides dressed in sneakers and all white, running miles to help pay for their wedding.

"I was watching a lot of my friends get engaged and they already had a lot of the crock pots and stuff that they need. But, it can be awkward to ask for money for your wedding," said Snow.

Snow hopes this will help brides-to-be enjoy the process leading up to the wedding aisle all while supporting ‘Bra Couture KC,’ a local non-profit providing resources to cancer patients, who are uninsured or underinsured.

Already, ‘Bra Couture KC’ has raised more than $750,000 to help local organizations.
