Scores of people ran, walked and exercised at Hagerstown Junior College from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday to help Tri-State women in their fight against breast cancer.
Participants in the 1997 Y-ME Fitness Fest raised more than $40,000 Saturday to benefit breast cancer education and assistance programs run by the non-profit Y-ME of the Cumberland Valley, said Y-ME spokeswoman Sunny England.
"There were probably 300 to 400 participating this year," England said. "It was our biggest crowd ever. We were thrilled when we saw the people turning out today."
England said the 5-K run, in its second year, grew in popularity. "Last year we had a field of 60. This year we had a field of 90 plus," she said.
