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!
