Thousands participate in the 'Race for the Cure'

Thousands participate in the 'Race for the Cure'

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.

Knoxville's oldest church celebrates 220th anniversary

Knoxville's oldest church celebrated 220 years of history and worship Sunday.

First Presbyterian Church was founded in what's now downtown Knoxville in 1792 and plays a part in the story of the city's origins.

The church has endured a war at home and development but they've made sure to preserve their part of Knoxville's history.

The church has seen three sanctuaries and a lot of change, but the message has stayed the same.

It's been an annual tradition on the streets of Knoxville for more than a decade, and the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is hoping East Tennesseans will turn out once again this month to help those fighting breast cancer.

For years, this race has seen tremendous growth. In 2010, they hit a record 14,000 participants. Last year, they were down to 11,600. Organizers hope that drop doesn't continue this year.
