Thousands Take to the Streets of Downtown Lansing to Race for a Cure

Chris Pearson, President and founder of the local foundation, says the race netted over $105,000 last year and the amount may be close to the $150,000 mark this year. Seventy-five percent of the profits from donations and registration will stay in the Lansing area for breast cancer screenings, treatment and education. The remaining 25-percent will go to national breast cancer research.

Michelle Hall, a 34-year-old mother of five, participated in Sunday's race. It's her first time. She thought it would be fitting since she's battling breast cancer. Hall brought her family along, she says, not only to support her but also to support the cause.
