Runners ran for survivors of breast cancer, those battling the disease, as well as those who have died from it at the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure at Fresno State on Saturday.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month was specially recognized Saturday at Fresno State when scores of runners – men, women, boys and girls – ran through the sunlit campus in the annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.

The event is part of a national effort to raise both awareness of the disease and funds for research. Individual 5K races were held for men and women, as well as walks of varying distances and a kids race.

A ceremony to recognize breast cancer survivors also was conducted. Those who died from the disease also were honored.
