Pink Moon Run raises money for breast cancer

Jackson, Missouri, isn't exactly a bustling metropolis, but that doesn't mean residents of the town can't participate in Breast Cancer awareness month.

In fact, the Pink Moon Run, which was started by Cathy Seabaugh to honor her sister's fight against the disease, promises to be the go-to event of the fall season, according to KFVS News.

Cathy, whose sister is now 100 percent cancer-free, still tears up when she thinks about her sibling's ordeal.

"I got a phone call on February 11th," Seabaugh told the news outlet. "My sister had gone to have a growth checked out and she found out that day that it was malignant and she had breast cancer."

The 5-mile race, which is scheduled for October 30, will take participants through the scenic city center and allow them to loop around the courthouse, which will be lit up in pink.

"Without research we don't have hope," Seabaugh told the news source. "I'm not a scientist but I can do this."

According to the American Cancer Society, every woman over the age of 40 should undergo a yearly mammogram.
