The St. Petersburg Police Department had some fun for a good cause and now its going viral. 

The officers all participated in the Running Man Challenge after being nominated by Hot 101.5. So just in case you don't know and right now you're asking... "What is the Running Man Challenge?" 

It's a dance craze that swept social media after two teens started it on the photo and video sharing app, instagram. The 1990s hit song, "My Boo" by Ghost Town DJs is the soundtrack to the dance and it really took off when two University of Maryland started posting videos of themselves doing the dance online. Ever since, it has spread to police departments around the world and now the St. Petersburg Police Department is in the spotlight.
