CRESTVIEW — The American Cancer Society is more than $7,000 closer to a cure following Saturday's Davidson Dash 5K/10K.

"The numbers are not final, but preliminary numbers look like $7,500, give or take $100," event organizer Daniel Richards said.

Nearly 300 participants ran the race or signed up for a silent auction to win door prizes donated by local businesses.

Ultimately, they remembered loved ones and neighbors touched by cancer.

"It's a cause that is near to our hearts," said Crestview resident Suzi Gaszak, who ran with her 13-year-old son, Jonah. "My mom had cancer several years ago and passed away."
