Many Cheered for Runners and Walkers at Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure
The 14th annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure drew around 1,500 runners and walkers to Adado Riverfront Park on Sunday, a new site for the race.
It's very inspiring to see so many people pull together every year to continue the fight against breast cancer. Before the race began at 2 p.m., several people joined me on stage to tell their survival story on how they beat this deadly disease.
We thank everyone who joined us on a beautiful day for a great run/ walk and of course the kids sprint and 1 mile race was great fun too!
If you remember, the 2015 race attracted 3,000 people and raised $200,000. Most of that money stays in mid-Michigan to help patients locally. Donations also fund research to combat breast cancer, an illness that affects more than 200,000 Americans annually. The Lansing State Journal has more!
