Speedo Run For Fire Victims

Fire victims in Shelby County have received an unusual offer for help.

Tim Arvin has vowed to run four miles through Shelbyville in a Speedo on Christmas Eve Morning if community members can raise $4,000 to help Justin and Tonya Brown and their family.

WLEX-TV reports the family lost their 6-year-old daughter in the fire. It destroyed all the family's belongings, including Christmas presents and birthday presents for their 3-year-old son.

Arvin said he doesn't know the Brows, he's not a runner and doesn't even own a Speedo, but he felt that something drastic was needed to get people to give.

Arvin's company says it will match the $4,000 if it's raised.
