Race for the Cure

    The 21st annual Susan G. Komen Philadelphia Race for the Cure took place Sunday morning to raise awareness for breast cancer.

    Since being launched in 1991 the Komen Philadelphia Race for the Cure has grown to become the largest run/walk event in Philadelphia.

    Thousands of people, donned in pink, convened around Eakins Oval at the Art Museum early this morning to participate and show their support.

    All the money raised stays in the Delaware valley and is used for breast cancer research and education.
