Komen Race for the Cure 

Thousands of runners spent Sunday racing for a cure.

The 11th annual Komen Maine Race for the Cure kicked off Sunday morning on the Bangor waterfront.

More than 3,600 people took park in the event…raising money, then walking or running the race course downtown.

Organizers were hoping to beat last year’s total donations, which were in excess of $185,000.

The Komen Breast Cancer Foundation was established in 1982 to honor the memory of Susan G. Komen, who died of breast cancer.

Since then, the foundation has raised more than $600 million.
