BREVARD COUNTY • KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLORIDA – Over 1,300 runners and walkers participated in the 3rd annual Space Florida Gateway to Space 5/10K race held at the Kennedy Space Center Space Shuttle Landing Facility.
More than $60,000 was raised to support the American Cancer Society’s mission of saving lives from cancer.
Funds raised help the American Cancer Society provide free information and support for people facing the disease today, and fund cancer research that will help protect future generations.
“It was inspirational to see people from all parts of our community come out to support us and help save lives from cancer,” said Susan Shaw, Central Florida Executive Director.
“Together, we celebrated those surviving cancer, remembered loved ones lost, and took tangible action to make a difference.”
The American Cancer Society is a global grassroots force of 1.5 million volunteers dedicated to saving lives, celebrating lives, and leading the fight for a world without cancer.
From breakthrough research to free lodging near treatment, a 24/7/365 live helpline, free rides to treatment, and convening powerful activists to create awareness and impact, the Society is attacking cancer from every angle.
The ACS publishes books on cancer that support patients, caregivers, and families dealing with a cancer diagnosis, as well as books on nutrition and healthy eating.
