USAF ACADEMY, Colo. - For the fourth straight year, the Air Force men's and women's gymnastics programs took to the streets of Denver to participate in the annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
The 35 members of the Falcons' combined program were some of the over 40,000 participants that took part in the 20th anniversary of Denver's race on Sunday, Oct. 7. The race began at Confluence Park and continued around Sports Authority Field at Mile High, before concluding near the Pepsi Center and Auraria campus.
Junior Tyler Huebner served as the captain for the Falcons' volunteer efforts at the annual race and Air Force exceeded its goal, earning distinction as one of the race's Top 100 teams.
Denver's Race for the Cure is one in a series of races that take place every year around the world. The races help raise significant funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer, celebrate breast cancer survivorship and honor those who have lost their battle with the disease.
