TULSA, Oklahoma -- It's being called the most successful race in Komen Tulsa history, breaking all kinds of records.

The Tulsa Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure released the final numbers for race participants and dollars raised.

A total of 12,300 people laced up their shoes to participate and all told, the race raised $935,000 to help in the fight against breast cancer. Seventy-five percent of that stays right here in Tulsa.

News on 6 is proud to be the media sponsor, and we say thanks to everyone who supported this year's event.

During the month of October, one Tulsa business made it their mission to raise funds as well. If you shop at Reasor's, no doubt you saw the pink ribbon grocery sacks. Customers helped the company raise more than $16,000 Komen Tulsa.

President Jeff Reasor presented this check to Komen Executive Director Christy Southard and Komen Tulsa President Ashley Antle. This is the second year Reasor's pinked out the store during breast cancer awareness month!
