Hundreds of people in Salina kicked off Breast Cancer Awareness Month Saturday morning by lacing up their shoes and running, or walking, the length of Santa Fe Avenue. It was the “Fe for a Cure” event to help locally in the fight against cancer.
Fe for A Cure is a unique event. It is very colorful, and is a rare straight course. It is point to point race/walk through the heart of Salina. It starts at St. John’s Military School and journeys straight south to Kansas Wesleyan University.
Unlike some other similar events, all of the proceeds from this event will be donated. One hundred percent of the proceeds from Fe for a Cure will go to benefit breast cancer patients at the Tammy Walker Cancer Center.
Those who ran and walked, made Fe for a Cure a fun, colorful event. Many dressed in bright pink.
Organizers tell KSAL News that there were about 700 runners / walker at the event. The goal is to eventually have over 1,000 people run and walk Fe for a Cure.
