SHELBY COUNTY - AL -

For ten years, the Brenda Ladun Conquer Cancer Run has encouraged people never to give up, even in the face of a killer disease.

This year's race, was another big success.

With the blast of the horn by ABC 33/40's Dave Baird, men, women, and children began the three mile run.

A run, for more birthdays.

These runners represent the hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten. And, the hope that one day, cancer will be eliminated.

One of the survivors - Barrie Sims.

"12 years going, I have the best support ever, and I'm thrilled to be here," says a beaming Sims.

A  team member running in support of survivors and those battling the disease
was Natalie Meeks.

"There's a lot of different types of cancers, and it affects everybody, whether you're the person with it or you're the supporter," says Meeks.

This race was even more reason to celebrate as Bret Henderson proposed to his girlfriend, Candice Williams after she crossed the finish line.

Her mother, is a breast cancer survivor. His mother, in remission.

It is called the Brenda Ladun Conquer Cancer Run.  But this race, is for everyone who has been touched by cancer.

And those who won't give up the fight to beat it.
