COLORADO SPRINGS - We're just over a month away from the 2017 Race for the Cure, so we spoke to one cancer survivor who says she races to help others.
Cynthia Miller was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer last August.
Her first round of chemotherapy was the same week as last year's race, so her friends and coworkers put together a team to help her through her battle.
But this year, she says she is racing for a different reason.
"I want to help raise money to give back to others, to kind of pay back what was given to me. And I do that through the race and fundraising. There is an organization called Chemo Angel that I've hooked up with that I send cards to someone else around the country just to help brighten their day," said Miller.
Seventy-five percent of funds raised at events like Race for the Cure stay here to help benefit the local community.
The 2017 Race for the Cure is September 10 at Garden of the Gods.
