(WHAS11)  Ten thousand people packed the waterfront to support survivors of breast cancer for the 15th Annual Komen Race for the Cure on Saturday.  Survivors walked and cheered their way down a pink carpet and were applauded by a crowd of supporters.
 

Then, on the streets of downtown Louisville, walkers and runners made their way along a five mile and one mile route.  For survivors of breast cancer, this event brings together so many for support and camaraderie, and helps them to keep fighting.
 

Phyllis Gray, a 16 year survivor said, “It’s very important to be around people and see that you can live; that cancer is not a death sentence.”
 

Seventy-five percent of the money raised at Saturday’s race event stays right here in Kentuckiana.  WHAS11 was a proud sponsor of this year’s event. Check out photos from the 2010 walk in our photo gallery.
