Doctors with the UVA Breast Care Program say the four miler is by far their largest fundraiser every year.
More than 3,000 women crossed the finish line at this year's Charlottesville Women's Four Miler on August 31. The race brought runners of all ages to the four-mile course located on Garth Road near Foxfield.
The Breast Care Program's Co-Director Dr. David Brenin says the money raised will be put towards patient care and research into new treatments.
“We're going to be able to continue to offer really groundbreaking treatment for patients. The money will be used to help make the care we can offer newly diagnosed patients with breast cancer more comfortable,” said Brenin.
The funds also help fuel resources for patient education.
The race has raised more than $2.5 million over the past 21 years to support the program's services.
