COLUMBIA - The Columbia Police Department Community Outreach Unit made a visit to an elementary school, but not for the reason you'd think.

Fifth graders at Alpha Hart Lewis Elementary School joined police in the Running Man Challenge, a dance move that has gone viral in 2016.

The Community Outreach Unit is going up against the Training and Recruiting Unit and School Resource Officer Keisha Edwards in the challenge, and it can be followed on social media by searching #RunningManChallenge.

The department is encouraging the public to view all the videos and vote on their favorite, which can be found on the CPD's Facebook page.
