The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure was held in Portland's Back Bay. The event raised money for breast cancer education, treatment, screening, and research.

This year's race raised more than $100,000. Organizers said they were thrilled to see such a strong turnout Sunday to support a cause that affects people all across the state of Maine.

"Breast cancer doesn't discriminate," Komen Maine Board President Holly Korda said. "One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their lifetime."

The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure has another race scheduled for next Sunday in Bangor.

This the fourth year the event has been held in Portland. The race has gone on for the past 18 years in Bangor.
