TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Terre Haute's Memorial Stadium filled with pink Saturday morning.
Breast cancer survivors, family and friends of those who lost the battle, and those still fighting joined together for the 16th annual Race for the Cure.
More than 3,000 people showed their support.
About $100,000 were raised this year.
Most of that money will stay here, in the Wabash Valley.
It'll help men and women with health screenings and mammograms.
"Each and everyone one of us knows someone, loves someone, or are someone who has breast cancer. We're all affected by breast cancer, and it's time we eradicated this disease," Race for the Cure Chair Lorrie Heber said.
Indiana State University, Union Hospital, along with many businesses, including Kroger and First Financial Bank sponsored the event.
The Wabash Valley Chapter of Susan G. Komen awarded nearly $2 million to local organizations to help fight breast cancer.
