Thousands of East Tennesseans celebrated breast cancer survivors and those who passed away from this disease at the Komen-Knoxville Race for the Cure on Saturday morning.

10News reporter Allison Bybee started the runners with a blow horn. More than 10,000 people ran or walked, filling the downtown streets with pink.

Organizers hoped to raise $900,000 through Saturday's race. Those profits will help provide cancer research and support. Seventy-five percent of the money raised stays in Tennessee, helping cancer patients pay for bills and food.
