9/21/2011, 6:30 p.m.
Several hundred breast cancer survivors and thousands of their supporters, families and friends ran, jogged or casually walked through Central Park on Sunday morning for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
As the devoted increased efforts to truly "Run Breast Cancer Out of Town," the 2011 Komen Greater NYC Race for the Cure pushed to reach their goal of $6 million before they officially close out the race on Oct. 31.
On stage was actress Gabrielle Union and Rep. Charles Rangel.
Once again, the Amsterdam News team joined colleague and four-year breast cancer survivor Nayaba Arinde on the 5k (3.2 mile) trail through the park. Also in the crew were Councilman Charles Barron and Assemblywoman Inez Barron, along with people from Brooklyn's December 12th Movement and the Freedom Party.
