Running for Ribbons

Richland's Howard Amon Park hosted hundreds of runners and walkers today who were hoping to raise funds and awareness for cancer research.

It was part of the Tri-Cities Cancer Center Foundation's Run for Ribbons.

Participants could choose between a 10K, 5K or 1 mile run or walk.

Many choose to honor a loved one who passed away from cancer or is currently fight a battle with the disease.

That was either through the team name or by decorating t-shirts.

More than $54,000 was raised in the event.

All of that money will stay local.
