STUDIO CITY (CBS) — Thousands of Angelenos are gearing up to Race for the Cure for breast cancer.
The annual Race for the Cure begins at 9 a.m. Sunday at Dodger Stadium and CBS2 and KCAL9 are sponsors. Those who haven’t registered yet can do so on site.
Breast cancer leads Los Angeles County as the most diagnosed cancer. Statistics show that over 100 cases are diagnosed weekly and there are 22 breast cancer deaths per week.
Susan G. Komen Los Angeles is now building a $1 million Komen Fund that will help those with the disease afford care and increase survival rates in L.A. County.
Deb Anthony, Executive Director of SGK-LA, and Steve Mauldin, President and General Manager of CBS2/KCAL9, stopped by the KCAL9 studios on Wednesday at noon to talk about this weekend’s event.
