Davidson Dash raises more than 7K for cancer research (PHOTOS)

Gaszak's mother, Shelby Seymour, died from breast cancer in 1989. Although progress in cancer treatments has come a long way since then, Gaszak would love for there to be a cure.

"Now you have a good chance of survival; back then it was almost a death sentence, and that's why I want to see an end to this," she said.

Niceville resident Blake Sparks said she enjoys running 5Ks, but particularly appreciates the cause of this one.

   "I just ran to support the cause," she said. "Raising money for the fight against cancer is an important cause."

Running the Dash was a way to honor loved ones with cancer while having the added benefit of exercise, Trevor Bryant, 15, said.

"It's fun," he said. "Everybody can get out and have a good time."
