LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Valley Station was the place for free cancer screenings and classic cars Saturday morning.

About 120 custom cars were parked at Kroger on Dixie Highway for the third annual Cruizin' for a Cure.

About 1200 people visited booths for the free health care screenings, which are otherwise inaccessible for some people. 

"I think its necessary because health is a big issue, and it brings a lot of awareness to a lot of different diseases like diabetes, or high blood pressure or anything, things that people might overlook, at least it will bring it to light," said Kroger employee and pharmacy coordinator Sam Lee.

Admission was free, but any money made from Saturday's event goes to the American Diabetes Association. 

The American Diabetes Association is an organization that works to prevent diabetes, which affects 26 million Americans every year.
