Race for the Cure

Posted: Updated:
Findlay, Ohio -

An army of survivors, family, and friends have traveled far and wide to come together to fight the battle against breast cancer.

Cancer survivor, Diane Rogoff, is back in her hometown from Texas and she says she has many hopes for the future of beating cancer.

Another survivor says breast cancer is a battle in her family and she even lost her grandmother in the fight, but she believes others can take cancer head on.

Some families have not been as lucky to have survivors beat breast cancer, but they say it is necessary to get involved with events such as these.

Officials of the Findlay Inaugural Susan G. Komen's Race for the Cure say the turnout of the big day will lead to much more in the future.

Karen Cline says there is a goal of $155,000 and the drive will be open until the end of October.

As of Friday night, officials say there were 3,100 people registered to walk and over 500 hundred volunteers taking action against cancer.
