Huge turnout for "Race"

Tyler (KLTV) - More than 5,000 East Texans dressed out, laced up and hit the pavement in the name of conquering a deadly disease, breast cancer. In fact, breast cancer survivors stood out in their vibrant pink t-shirts.

Organizers tell KLTV 7 the annual "Komen Race For the Cure" in Tyler this morning was one of the biggest since it all started 13 years ago. Organizers also say 75% of the money raised in this year's race will stay in Smith County to help local breast cancer survivors.
