Sunday, Oct. 8, 2006. Despite the cool cloudy weather the race set a record for attendance as 65,395 participants came out Sunday to show their support for those affected by breast cancer and to raise money for breast cancer education, screening and treatment programs. Since its inception in 1993, the Komen Denver Race for the Cure has grown from 3500 participants to more than 63,000 in 2004. In that time, the Denver Metropolitan Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Foundation has contributed more than $14 million to Denver Area not-for-profits focusing on breast cancer education, screening and treatment programs. In addition, the Denver Affiliate has provided more than $6 million to fund breast cancer research through the National Komen Foundation. Despite the fact that Colorado boasts only slightly more than 4 million residents, the Komen Denver Race for the Cure has held the coveted position as the largest Race for the Cure in the nation for the past 3 years.(DARIN MCGREGOR/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS) **Donna Nelligan (cq) **Carrie Newman (cq)
