Thousands Take Part In Avera's Race Against Breast Cancer

May 10, 2014, 5:55 PM by Leland Steva

Thousands Take Part In Avera's Race Against Breast Cancer
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

1,600 South Dakotans die from cancer each year, and breast cancer is the second most common cancer diagnosis in the Mt. Rushmore state. And today, thousands of runners step up to the starting line to help defeat the deadly disease.

Starting at 8 a.m., runners took to the roads for a 5k or 10k race. It cost at least $30 to enter the race, with all the money staying local to help people and families dealing with the disease.

Today there was over 6,100 participants and $375,000 in donations. There was a wide variety of ages running through the streets of Sioux Falls, with most either running for a family member or a friend that has dealt with the disease.

“It was great. Absolutely beautiful day, a great group of people for a wonderful cause,” first time runner Barry Hein said.

There was Digital Screening Mammograms going on in the parking lot near the start line.

If people are interested in seeing their times from the race, you can find it on the Avera Race app for iPhones and Android devices.
