Skies were gray but smiles and spirits were bright in Central Park this morning for the Join the Voices! 5-mile run, 1.7-mile walk, and kids' races in support of Voices Against Brain Cancer (VABC). More than 4,000 runners completed the run, and hundreds of walkers carrying signs and wearing matching team shirts joined together in solidarity and support of the fight against brain cancer.
The Join the Voices! 5-mile run, 1.7-mile walk, and kids' races are an annual display of the way that the running community unites people of diverse backgrounds in pursuit of a common goal. Of the 5,000+ runners and walkers who participated today, the most spirited were those wearing matching team shirts and waving banners in support of Voices Against Brain Cancer (VABC) and their friends and family members who have been affected by brain tumors.
