Dozens of men and women decked out in pink showed their support for breast cancer awareness by participating in the Pink Warrior Angels’ 2nd Annual Pink Warrior Dash 5k run/ walk.
The 5k took place at the Copperas Cove City Park Saturday morning. Many had family or friends that had been through, or are currently going through, a cancer diagnosis. Some just wanted to race and were happy that their entry fees will go toward a good cause. 62 people pre-registered for the event, and many registered for the 5k on Saturday.
The 1st place overall finisher of the 5k was Alex Wilson with a time of 22:50. 1st place male and 2nd place overall was Christian Riedenaur with a time of 23:36. Chellie Cannon finished in 3rd place with a time of 24:39.
