More than 11,000 people laced up their sneakers to raise money in the fight against breast cancer.
The money goes to the Peoria affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
On Sunday, the foundation said it's incredibly close to reach its 2012 goal of $1 million. Preliminary numbers show the race has made $985,000 so far.
That includes money from registration, fundraising and sponsorships. Final totals are due Monday, May 21.
Three-quarters of the money raised stays in central Illinois to help with cancer education and screenings.
The rest is used to fund research on a national level. But the foundation said often times that money returns to central Illinois in the form of grants for colleges and medical institutions.
