Thousands race in pink for a cure

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Thousands turn out in pink for a special cause.

The annual Susan G. Komen "Race for the Cure" brought athletes and supporters to downtown Louisville Saturday morning. The race and walk raises money for breast cancer awareness and research.

Many of the participants have a personal connection to breast cancer; many of them are breast cancer survivors or have a loved one with cancer.

"It's amazing. One of my very best friends is suffering with breast cancer right now so it's a really heartfelt weekend. It's just wonderful to be out here supporting it," says Tiffany Weigel.

Thousands dressed up in wigs or pink t-shirts for the race.

This year's course was changed for runners and walkers because of the closure of the Sherman Minton Bridge.
