LIVERPOOL, NY (WSYR-TV) - More than 600 people were at Long Branch Park Sunday morning for the 2nd
Annual Upstate New York CureSearch Walk. Money raised goes toward childhood cancer research.
CureSearch is a national non-profit foundation. It says that 36 children are diagnosed with cancer every day and that 1 in 5 children will lose their battle with cancer.
The Chairwoman of Sunday’s event lost her daughter to the disease a few years ago."Unfortunately she passed away when she was 18, in June of 2009 and I am here personally because I made a promise to her that I would do what I could to help find a cure,” said Chairwoman Stacey Borst.
NewsChannel 9 Meteorologist Jim Teske served as Master of Ceremonies for the walk.
