DALLAS, TX - Before the sun rose on a brisk, fall Saturday morning, thousands gathered outside NorthPark Center in Dallas.
The annual Susan G. Komen Dallas Race for the Cure drew support from those who raced for a loved one, themselves, or for a cure.
"This means a lot to me, to be a part of this race for the cure. I'm a two-time breast cancer survivor, myself," Anise Montgomery told NewsFix.
"It's just amazing to see the people out here and to be able to support them, who have gone thru what I have gone through."
Survivors, caregivers, friends, family and medical professionals were among the masses that hit the pavement in an effort to raise awareness and money for the cause.
"Behind every ribbon, there's a caregiver that's taking care of someone in need," Montgomery added.
"It was all different types of people with different colors and flavors. everyone seems so happy and just glad to be here," one participant added. "It was a wonderful walk. It was great."
