DENVER -- All across Colorado on Saturday, military veterans united with a common purpose for the sixth annual Run as One race.

Five 5K races took place in Durango, Grand Junction, Colorado Springs, Fort Collins and Denver.

The purpose of the race is to get veterans together from various organizations.

It's also an opportunity for the public to see what the veteran community is capable of as a whole and highlight the different organizations out there that need support.

In Colorado Springs, nearly 100 runners showed up to brave the cold temperatures and show their collaborative support for veterans living in the state.
