Hundreds of people hit the pavement for the second annual Pittsburgh Cure 5K run walk in Allison Park. The race kicked off at 9 a.m. Saturday morning at the North Park Boathouse on Pearce Mill Road. About 1,400 Sarcoma patients and survivors, along with friends and family members, took part in the event. Sarcomas are rare, cancerous tumors that develop in a variety of tissue structures including nerves, muscles, joints and bones, and is most prevalent in young adults and children. More than $100,000 was raised for the event and will go towards research in finding a cure for the disease. Proceeds benefit the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, Sarcoma Research Fund and the Sarcoma Foundation of America. More than 50,000 people nationwide are battling sarcomas and up to 5,000 people die from the disease each year.
