DETROIT (AP) -- Thousands have turned out for the annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure at Comerica Park in Detroit.
Saturday's event raised funds in the fight against breast cancer. It featured a 5K run/walk and a one-mile walk.
The Komen race honors those who have fought breast cancer as well as their families and friends.
Attendees gathered near the Detroit Tigers' ballpark downtown in a sea of pink. The color represents breast cancer awareness.
Mayor Dave Bing was on hand and said he's "going to support this until we win the fight."
The Susan G. Komen organization was founded by Nancy Brinker in 1982 in memory of her sister, who died of the disease, and it grew to be the nation's largest-breast cancer charity.
