Hundreds turn out for Buddy Check 10K

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Well over 100 people came out to Buddy 10K race out at Chehaw Park this morning.

Thanks to your support WALB was able to raise more than $10,000  for the Cancer Coalition of South Georgia.

The winner of today's race says he was happy to support a good cause.

"I mean I enjoy running but I also enjoy the competition that's out there. But also for awareness, it's for you know, cancer and cancer victims. It's really important to get that message out there to do self examinations," Robert Nolasco said.

The race was an effort to raise awareness about breast cancer.
