LITTLE ROCK, AR -- With energy and enthusiasm, 38,000 people support the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.

Early Saturday morning, survivors cover downtown Little Rock hoping for a breast cancer cure.

"I look forward to this each and every year. The crowd is just so hype," said supporter Desiree Grisley.

The proceeds raised support research for cancer patients like Beverly Hill.

"When I was 3 months pregnant with my twins, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. We went through two chemotherapies and two surgeries together," said Hill, "So we are 13 year survivors this year."

Planners say the event not only raises money, but it also serves as a source of comfort for so many Central Arkansas families.

"I love it. I love it. I love it. The energy is so fun," said Hill.

Leaders say they won't have a final number on this year's race until all the money is collected in November. Last year, the event raised $2 million dollars.

75 percent of donations stays right here in Arkansas for research.
