Susan G. Komen. Race For The Cure
The race kicked off at 77th Street and Central Park West and heads uptown to 90th Street, at which point the runners turned into Central Park.
Theresa Lana’s doctor said the odds were stacked against her, but noted that Lana’s incredible spirit helped her get through chemotherapy, radiation and six surgeries.
Over 20,000 people took part in last year’s run, raising $6 million in much-needed funding. But beyond the money, the Race For The Cure is meant to celebrate life and honor those who have lost the battle against breast cancer.
Central Park hosted 25,000 people Sunday for what has become an annual tradition in the Big Apple.
