5k run and walk for cancer research in Hazard

Organizers at a fun run and walk today Hazard say it was not only fun for the whole family, it was a chance to make a difference.

A team for Perry County Relay for Life, the Maces Creek Crusaders, organized the event. This is their first ever fun run and walk event. All proceeds raised in the Fight to the Finish 5K Fun Run and Walk go to Relay for Life, which funds cancer research.

"Any dollar counts really. There's nothing that doesn't count. Twenty dollars maybe isn't that much but if you add them together...if it helps a few patients then that's good enough. We have made an effort and we have made a change in that patient's life," said Dr. Hassan Ghazal, an oncologist.

Last year the Maces Creek Crusaders raised $10,000 for Relay for Life.
