Countdown to Race for the Cure

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is now only one week away.

Tens of thousands of people, breast cancer survivors, those who love them, and the families of those lost to breast cancer, will converge on Uptown Charlotte to raise money and awareness.

Nikita Sanders, the 2014 Race Chair, visited WBTV News Saturday Morning to talk about this year's Race for the Cure.

The festivities begin at 6am in Marshall Park on October 4th and the first race steps off just after 7am.
