Thousands Participate in Breast Cancer 5K
The annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K raises awareness and money for breast cancer research, education, advocacy and patient services.
This year, more than 1,000 participants raised more than $50,000 before the start of the walk.
Some walkers were survivors themselves. Others supported family members, like William Moore, who wanted to support his grandmother, who is a nine-year survivor.
“This means I get to be with my grandmother for more years, even though she’s had breast cancer. It means a lot to me because she’s my grandma. I can’t live without her,” said Moore.
“Oh my goodness, survivor! It’s been rough, but we’re doing it,” said Aishah Ridgeway, a seven-month breast cancer survivor.
Fox 8’s own Tracy McCool served as the emcee for the event.
