Downtown Sioux City hosts annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure

Posted:

SIOUX CITY (KTIV) - Thousands gathered Sunday in Sioux City's downtown to walk and run, for breast cancer awareness.

The Susan G. Komen Cancer Foundation's annual Race for the Cure hosted thousands dressed up in pink and ready to move to raise awareness.

Officials say the race is their largest fundraiser, and this year was no different.

Those involved said it was incredibly moving to see so many people gathered for the same purpose: to help raise money and awareness to find a cure for breast cancer.

"It just brings everyone together," Laura Johnson, Race for the Cure Co-Chair said. "Not only are we raising money, but we're bringing the community together, and everybody that knows somebody that's battling breast cancer, or has survived it, or has lost their battle. It's just empowering for everybody to come together for this horrible disease that has taken so many lives."

The Susan G. Komen Foundation takes donations year-round.
