SLIDE SHOW: Thousands Show Up for Race for the Cure

Breast cancer affects one out of every eight women in America and touches the lives of even more families.

But treatments are getting better and the stories of survivors grow with the help those who "Race for the Cure.”

There was an unbelievable turnout for Sunday morning's Susan G Komen Race for the Cure on Milwaukee's lakefront. Thousands of people dressed in pink walked, jogged and ran to make sure moms, aunts, sisters and grandmas and friends will be there for years to come.

"I wouldn't be able to survive without my friends. They mean everything to me. They mean the world to me. I don't know how people can survive without your friends and family. It really means everything," said Mary Pfeffer a breast cancer survivor.

The race is near and dear to us at CBS 58. Michele McCormack emceed the event, Michael Schlesigner and Eric Levy were also in attendance.
