14,000 Run for the Cure in Charlotte

The weather was nearly perfect Saturday – sunny and in the 60s – when more than 14,000 people joined the 18th annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Charlotte. The 5K race honored breast cancer survivors and raised $1.4 million for breast cancer research.

Charlotte Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams led a team and has helped promote the race. He told the Charlotte Observer last week that four aunts and his mother died from the disease.
