The Liz Hurley Ribbon Run went virtual for 2020, but 2,500 of you still laced up your running shoes and hit the streets, treadmills and trails to #runwithLiz. Thanks to each runner, sponsor and donor, $277,000 was raised to purchase new 3D mammography equipment for the Huntsville Hospital Breast Center. This lifesaving diagnostic equipment will screen countless women from across our region, detecting breast cancer earlier and more accurately.

"When I went to the Surviving and Thriving program, none of us in that room had the same type of breast cancer; none of us had the same treatment. But, we had all heard those three scary words – ‘you have cancer.’ When I asked where the funds for the program came from, and they said the Liz Hurley Breast Cancer Fund, I was so thankful to see the positive and tangible impact of the Ribbon Run. Every penny stays here and goes to the front lines of the fight. I owe this fund my life."
