And when that one person leaves the country to get further training, there's no one else that can operate it.

"We have had sellout attendance the past two years with 800 plus people [coming to see the guest speakers] Joan Lunden and Kendra Scott and are nearing a capacity crowd this year", Gerling said.

Wood was grateful for all of the race sponsors, especially Broyhill, a presenting sponsor.

Each year, this event has raised more than $75,000 and they hope to surpass that this year.

In turn, this helps Komen NWNC raise additional funds, Wood added.

"We're so proud of everything Asda's Tickled Pink campaign has achieved over the past 21 years".

Breast cancer survivor Amanda Lael made opening remarks Saturday morning. "God is good, I mean I'm blessed". Please don't worry about making a fuss, and do remember that most breast changes will not be cancer.

"I was diagnosed at age 39 with no family history". "Although there are times I wake up at 3 a.m. and I work long hours, it's all worth it", said Lee, holding back tears. "Although the overall breast cancer incidence rate during 2010 through 2014 was slightly lower in non-Hispanic black women than in non-Hispanic white, the breast cancer death rate during 2011 through 2015 was 42 percent higher in NHB women than in NHW women". She said she wept profusely after seeing the victim's situation.
