MARION, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) - For the Marion Police Department, when it comes to their K-9 unit, funding is everything.
On Saturday, the department held their annual 5K4K9 Fun Run to benefit their K-9 unit.
The run is the biggest fundraising event for the dog unit all year, which brings extra importance as the unit is funded almost entriely on donations.
About 400 people took part in this year's running, which Marion police hoped to raise $8,000.
Officers say to purchase and train just one police dog can cost upwards of $20,000.
