Cynthia Nixon
Joins 40,000 in Race for the Cure

Actress Cynthia Nixon, a Susan G. Komen ambassador, joined over 40,000 participants on Sunday in the organization's 19th annual Race for the Cure.

The 5K race was held on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., and raised $4.9 million for breast cancer research and health programs.

Nixon, along with the event's founder, Nancy G. Brinker, led more than 3,500 breast cancer survivors in a Parade of Pink during the pre-race ceremony.

Nixon, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006, went into remission after six and a half weeks of radiation.

"Whether you had cancer or are close to somebody who's had it, you want to do something," Nixon told TheWashington Post. "You want to show your love and support." (The Advocate)
