100 Club of Heart of Texas supports first responder families.

WACO - Several hundred people gathered in Waco Sunday to support local emergency workers at the First Responder Half Marathon. The run raised money for the families of fallen officers and fire fighters through the 100 Club of Heart of Texas, a nonprofit that helps the families of first responders in McLennan County. 
 
The 100 Club of Heart of Texas normally makes money off of donating members. Each member gives $100 every year.  
This is the fourth year Waco has hosted the First Responders Half Marathon.  Last year the race raised around $6,000 for the nonprofit and the turnout was even bigger this year. 
 
The 100 Club of Heart of Central Texas was founded to provide financial assistance to the family of a fallen police officer or fire fighter. It can provide a family up to  twenty five thousand dollars to cover expenses while family members wait for benefits to kick in. Supporters say that's important because benefits for a first responder's family are often delayed by the investigation into that person's death.
