TUCSON - The 14th Annual Susan G. Komen Southern Arizona Race for the Cure is in the history books, and News 4 Tucson was there in force!
Over 7,200 registered participants helped turn Reid Park into a "sea of pink" yesterday, racing to help raise money for breast cancer research in Arizona and nationwide.
Dustin Zimmerman won first place in the 5K race with a time of 15 minutes, 57 seconds. Tia Acetta won the female first place, with a time of 18 minutes and 10 seconds. Of course, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation was the real winner, with money raised from yesterday's race going to combat breast cancer at every front.
