The 2019 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure steps off in San Diego

In San Diego, six women a day are diagnosed with breast cancer and unfortunately one woman a day passes away from this disease.

Thousands of San Diegans joined Barbara Lee Edwards, KFMB Stations, Anderson, Heating, Plumbing and Air in our fight against breast cancer by participating in the 2019 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure on Sunday, Nov. 3. 

The annual race at Balboa Park includes a 5K and one-mile walk. Before the race stepped off there was an expo with vendor books as a survivor hospitality booth open throughout the morning. 

The walk began at 8 a.m. with closing ceremonies following. 

There were approximately 10,000 participants, volunteers, staff, and survivors on hand at the event. The race had raised $700,000 as of Sunday but fundraising continue until Nov. 11 so there's still time to donate and help Susan G. Komen reach their goal of $925,000
