So far, there has been over $85,000 donated towards Sunday's Race For The Cure. 

"Susan G. Komen Massachusetts is once again sponsoring the 5K race which takes runners, walkers and participants on a route where each step raises money to support the fight against breast cancer.

Race participants look for pledges from family, friends, co-workers, customers and more. Over the next 25 years, an estimated 5 million Americans will be diagnosed with breast cancer, and more than 1 million could die."
