Breast Cancer Survivors Pledge Continued Fundraising

DETROIT (WWJ) – The Susan G. Komen Detroit Race for the Cure is over for another year, but many who took part are inspired to do more.  

Saturday’s walk raised more than two million dollars for breast cancer research and treatment.  For 29-year breast cancer survivor Lois Pratt, of Lapeer, the fundraising doesn’t stop there.

“Well, I walk anytime there is a walk. I don’t do the, The Crim, which is a run.  I don’t do the Relay for Life, which is a run, but I do (walk) every time there’s a walk someplace,” says Pratt.

WWJ’s Beth Fisher asked Pratt why she is staying so involved.

“Oh, it raises money for one thing. That’s, that’s the big thing, I think,” Pratt says.

Pratt was among two thousand breast cancer survivors who took part in the Race for the Cure on Saturday.  About 40,000 people took part, raising money for breast cancer research and treatment.
