CLEVELAND – Thousands of northeast Ohioans turned out to run and walk for a great cause on Saturday morning, as the Susan G. Komen Northeast Ohio 23rd Annual Cleveland Race for the Cure was held in downtown Cleveland.

The race is Komen Northeast Ohio’s largest fundraiser and includes a 5K run and walk, a Survivor Ceremony, a Kids Dash and an Awards Ceremony. Money raised goes to pay for local breast health education, screenings, treatment and support programs. Nearly 5,000 people were expected to participate.

Fox 8 was on hand for the race and we got some great pictures of folks gearing up to take part.
