    There were 51,183 participants in downtown St. Louis this year, and 3,217 of those participants are breast cancer survivors.  So far the race has raised $2.46 million for breast cancer research and prevention. Seventy five percent of that money stays right here in St. Louis.

    This year there are 770 teams, and as of Friday, more than $2.45 million has been raised through Race for the Cure, and 75 percent of that stays right here in St. Louis to fund screening, treatment, education, and support programs.

    Fundraising continues through July. To make an online donation, click here.  NewsChannel 5 also hosted a phone bank from 6 a.m. until 10 a.m. to raise money for the cause.

    The race's fundraising program individual winner this year is Bridget DuMont of Bridget's Brigade. She raised over $15,000 and was given the opportunity to officially start the race, but she turned that honor over to the second highest individual fundraiser, Tara Boland, who is pregnant and currently battling breast cancer.

    The largest team this year is Team Breadhead, which consists of 4,600 participants that raised $189,200.

    The largest races this year were in Rome (50,000+) and Columbus, Ohio (44,000).
