BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
Earlier today, runners and walkers gathered together on the
LSU campus to raise money for a good cause.
The annual Susan G. Komen ‘Race for the Cure' campaign was
held this morning. The LSU campus was flooded in pink instead of the usual
purple and gold, in hopes to raise funds for breast cancer awareness.
Organizers say most of the money stays in Baton Rouge to
help women in the area. One cancer survivor, Carol Cook, had her treatment
yesterday, but she was still able to finish the race this morning.
"I walked a little bit while I was in Houston, and I felt like I
could do it, and I figured if I couldn't I would just stop and someone would
come and pick me up," Cook said, laughing. " I really wanted to be out here
though because of everything that's going on," she added.
The Race for the Cure has grown into more than 120 races worldwide
with more than 1 million people participating annually.
