WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- "Everybody's been touched in some way by breast cancer," said a volunteer with the Koman Northwest NC Race for the Cure. "So come out here, support us, have some great food and let's eradicate breast cancer from the start."
On the eve of the race, more than 2,600 people are signed up to run the 5K on Saturday morning.
Rain is expected, but organizers say the race will go on as usual.
"It doesn't matter about the weather, breast cancer is important," said Executive Director Diana Parrish.
Of the revenue raised by the organization, 75 percent goes to help people in the Piedmont fight cancer and 25 percent funds research.
The event kicks off at 6:30 a.m. with tailgating and then the race starts at 8 a.m. The event is being held at the BB&T Ballpark.
