Race for the Cure kicks off Breast Cancer Awareness month
October 1st marks the beginning of Breast Cancer Awareness month.
To get things rolling, Lubbock held the annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
Survivors and their family and friends showed up with their pink gear as they gathered at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center this morning to raise money and awareness.
Event organizers say many breast cancer survivors participate to inspire and motivate others, and that the run/walk is a way to promote fitness and a healthy lifestyle.
