LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)—The second annual Ugly Sweater Walk & Run event was held at Riehle Plaza Saturday morning. 

The event was organized by Momentum Indiana , an event management organization. Participants paid a thirty five dollar registration fee.

Part of the proceeds went to support the Lafayette Transitional Housing Center and Homestead CS

Co-founder of Momentum Indiana, Jake Franklin, said he hopes people will take away a positive and great message.

"I hope that they take away an event experience that they remember," said Franklin. "So that's the goal and a part of our philosophy is that people come here and they have a good time and they don't forget it. They want to come back next year."

The event welcomed over 300 participants this year.
