But Saturday's race is also about showing support for the sisterhood of women affected by the disease - women like Becky Anderson.
After beating breast cancer herself, Becky Anderson founded the website "Anything for a Friend" to help raise money for others battling the disease.
"You never prepare yourself for that moment. I think the heart is always naive to those types of moments," Becky says.
That life-changing moment, as Becky remembers it, came in the form of a phone call. She was expecting a routine report from the doctor, assuming the lumpectomy would prove clear just as her mammogram had - this hope, despite a nagging feeling that the lump she felt was something.
"I'm hearing these pauses in his voice," Becky remembers. "He said, 'I don't know how to tell you this but you have cancer.'"
They are words that would change this 37-year-old mom from the inside, out. But help and support quickly came pouring in.
"My little sister, who is 13 months to the day younger than me, has always been my pal," Becky says. "Her thought about this was, 'I need to do something. I gotta do anything I can;' and hers was to be active to be service-oriented. And that came in the form of a fundraiser."
Now, with her own cancer in remission, Becky is paying it forward through her website: Anything for a Friend.
"Anything for a friend is a vehicle created to help God's kids serve each other when we are in trouble," she says.
Becky has helped organize five fundraisers to date, giving support to others who are going through struggles of their own. For her, "giving" is the key.
"People want to express their goodness, and I love that they have the opportunity to do that," she says.

LAYTON - Becky Anderson looked around the packed dance hall and nearly burst into tears. Some people in the audience had known her since childhood, while others were acquaintances she'd waved to while jogging or running errands in the neighborhood.
What touched her most, though, were the "friends" who were strangers and yet had still shown up with open hearts and pocket books to chip in what they could in her fight against breast cancer.
"I knew right then that this whole experience was bigger than myself and that the love in that room needed to continue," says Anderson, recalling the fundraiser held in her honor last April.
...
The goal now, says Anderson, is to take "Anything for a Friend" nationwide, to let people know how simple and satisfying it can be to help a friend, or stranger, in need.
"There's no reason why this idea couldn't help 100 people on the very same day," says Anderson, who recently met me for a Free Lunch of pasta and salad with her sister at Layton's Olive Garden restaurant.
"What's amazing to me is that even though these are tough times," she says, "people still reach deep and give what they can to help a person win the fight of their lives."
In Anderson's case, that fight started late last year, when she found a lump in her right breast. With a history of breast cancer in her family (her maternal grandmother died from the disease), she went in for a mammogram and a biopsy.
The results came back clean, but Anderson, a mother of two young sons, couldn't shake an uneasy feeling. Against the advice of doctors who thought the lump was benign, she decided to have it removed. Lab results were shocking: Anderson had Stage 3 breast cancer.
When Anderson told her sister and best friend about the diagnosis, they felt desperate to help her turn the devastating news into something positive.
...
More than 1,000 people showed up to chip in more than $30,000 and watch Smith and Parker shave their heads in solidarity with Anderson, who had lost her thick, curly locks to chemotherapy treatments.
...
Touched by the generosity of those who would do "anything for a friend," Anderson jumped in to help organize a fund-raiser for another woman with breast cancer who didn't have insurance.
From there, she says, "it was like a rock tumbling downhill, picking up speed. A friend helped a friend, who helped another friend."
With help from www.anythingforafriend.com, rallies have been held for a child with bone cancer, a young woman going through her third bout with ovarian cancer and a man fighting a rare form of tissue cancer.
"Even if I had the power to take my experience with cancer away, I wouldn't do it," says Anderson.
...
"Anything For a Friend" got its start just a few months ago when Denise Parker and Brenda Scofield Smith decided they needed to do more than feel bad for Becky Scofield Anderson.
