MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The cold weather didn’t stop thousands of people from coming together for a one cause: supporting breast cancer awareness.

Saturday morning, the annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure took place in downtown Memphis.

WREG was proud to be a sponsor of the event again this year.

“The support is what keeps the survivors going,” said Tangela Norman. “I am a two time survivor! Now, I’m going through it again.”

Thousands bundled in their winter gear and decked out in pink tutus and boars.

“Rain, shine, sleet or snow, I am going to be here,” said Norman.

The festivities kicked off at Autozone Park where WREG’s Stephanie Scurlock and Greg Hurst led the warm up.

The race started at 9 a.m.

As each and every survivor finished the race, they felt empowered and fearless.

“I know I’m not alone,” said Norman.
