SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The 2011 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure isn't until November. But Sunday, the year-long campaign to raise money in the fight against breast cancer kicked off at Petco Park.
The San Diego Padres honored breast cancer survivors during a special ceremony before Sunday's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The event also served to raise awareness about how breast cancer can affect just about anyone.
"The San Diego Padres are even doing more than that by honoring 35 breast cancer survivors on the field today. And those survivors are surrounded by seven others and that represents one in eight people who will get breast cancer in their lifetime," said Laura Farmer-Sherman with Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure San Diego.
