SIOUX FALLS, SD -
Nearly 1 out of 8 women will battle breast cancer, which is why raising funds to find a cure is so crucial.
One of the most well- known organizations fighting for that cause is the Susan G. Komen Foundation, and today their Race For The Cure in Sioux Falls was full of people more than willing to help out the best way they could, by honoring survivors or those they have lost by walking or running.
Karen Boyk and Debbie Dohman are sisters and both are breast cancer survivors. They both say that events like this are extremely inspirational for those trying to stay strong and positive through a very difficult time.
"So, it was just something we started doing, and after that first walk, we said we're going to continue doing this as long as our bodies will allow us to do it. And you meet so many people and hear so many stories. It's just amazing the strength and the power a group of people has," Kay Boyk and Debbie Dohman said.
The sisters are often referred as the Mitten Ladies; they put mittens together out of recycled sweaters and sell them to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
