Many politicians run the annual race, the AP said.

Republican Sen. Thom Tillis said Wednesday he's "fine" after he collapsed during a Washington race and was taken away by ambulance. Tillis became dehydrated and overheated before collapsing during the ACLI Capital Challenge 3 Mile Team Race in support of Fidelco Guide Dogs.

Political leaders immediately offered their prayers for Tillis in tweets, including Gov. Roy Cooper, Sens. All proceeds generated by the race are donated to charity. Tillis collapsed Wednesday, May 17, 2017, during Washington race and was taken away in ambulance.

Event spokesperson Jeff Darman said Tillis suffered a seizure and was transported to George Washington University Hospital. That's good to hear.

Just running about 2 and a half miles in and got overheated, no CPR, no special measures, just checking me out.
