This year’s Race was an unbelievable success! We could not have done this without you! Whether you participated in the Race as a runner, walker or volunteer, you made a difference. From the start of the 5K run to the end of the survivor ceremony, inspiration, emotion, passion and love filled downtown Columbus last Saturday. The Race for the Cure is a true reminder of how connected we all are to each other.
