Breast Cancer survivors gather in Kearney
A small group of Breast Cancer survivors gathered in Kearney Sunday to celebrate life and continue to raise awareness.
Either being a breast cancer survivor or a supporter of a survivor, the group of about twenty gathered at the Kearney Holiday Inn.
While honoring the attendees for the common bond they shared, organizers wanted to get the word out about the 2nd Annual Race for the Cure to be held in two months.
The central Nebraska group started holding its own race because traveling to Denver caused a strain for some.
"We started this race last year," said Julie Weir, a member of the Co-chair Central Nebraska Race for the Cure. "We had a core committee of about twelve people. We each had a different function within that committee and we put on this race and we were very pleased and surprised to have so many come."
The 2nd Annual Central Nebraska Race for the Cure will be held on September 29th at UNK.
