Folks made some strides to help children in Haiti.

A special walkathon was held in Allentown Saturday to raise money for the Love Haiti's Children Orphanage in Port du Prince.

The founder of the orphanage is an Allentown resident who flies down to the country each month.

Organizers say the money raised Saturday will go directly to the 14 children at the orphanage.

Organizers hope to raise $40,000.
