Thousands Hit the Street to Fight Against Breast Cancer

More than four thousand people pounded the pavement Saturday morning in Amarillo to show their support in the fight against breast cancer. 

The annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure circled around Polk Street as runners and walkers aimed to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research. 

Many were there to honor those they love and have lost to the disease. 

"I was out here today in memory of her and women who battle the disease and continue to fight, and support Komen and hopefully there will be a cure one of these days," said Javier Martinez, who lost his mother to breast cancer 13 years ago. 

Many of today's runners and walkers formed teams to encourage each other to complete the course and cross the finish line. 

Across town, hairstylists were using their craft to do their part to support finding a cure for breast cancer. 

It was the 10th Annual "Clip for the Cure" at the Smart Style Family Hair Salon. 

The hairstylists charged $10 per haircut and will donate that money towards fighting breast cancer and creating awareness.
