Komen racers run for the cure

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Tens of thousands of runners and walkers raised more than $2 million for the battle against breast cancer Saturday.

About 40,000 people took part in the 21st annual Komen Columbus Race for the Cure in downtown Columbus.

The event, one of the nation’s largest of its kind, included 2,000 breast cancer survivors wearing pink survivor shirts and celebrating their lives with family and friends and the largest corporate and civic Komen teams in the US: Team LimitedBrands with 8,453 people and Team Perez with 929 people.

Komen Columbus officials say 75 percent of the more than $27 million the group has raised since it began in 1993 is used to conduct breast cancer education, screening and treatment programs in the 30-county central Ohio region.
