CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Nearly 18,000 people ran at Marshall Park on Saturday morning for the 16th annual Race for the Cure in uptown Charlotte.
Many of the runners ran for loved ones who were diagnosed or died from breast cancer. Participants said the event is a great way to let people know about the foundation.
The Charlotte-area foundation has raised more than $22 million through the event.
The money raised will go to the Susan G Komen Foundation to help find a cure for breast cancer and pay for sponsored patients.
