Making Strides For Cancer Research

BOCA RATON, FL (WFLX) Step by step, volunteers are raising thousands of dollars for cancer research.

It's all part of the Pap Corps 11th annual walkathon at the University of Miami Sylvester Cancer Center, in Deerfield Beach.

That's where thousands of people gathered Saturday making strides for a good cause.

People like Trudy Balizer who credits the care they received here to saving their lives from cancer.

I'm here because of the research and because of all the people who came before me that did that research so that I could be standing here today," said Balizer.

More than $200,000 were raised Saturday.

Every year about $3 to $4 million are also donated to help research at the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Through that research, care and screenings help treat a growing number of cancer survivors every year.
