Race for the Cure offers registration discount this weekend

It's been an annual tradition on the streets of Knoxville for more than a decade, and the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is hoping East Tennesseans will turn out once again this month to help those fighting breast cancer.

For years, this race has seen tremendous growth. In 2010, they hit a record 14,000 participants. Last year, they were down to 11,600. Organizers hope that drop doesn't continue this year.

Farragut High School students loaded up their decorated cars with donated cans and delivered them to the Love Kitchen on Friday afternoon.

The school estimates it collected about 10,000 cans of food for the local non-profit. Students and the community also raised nearly $2,500 for the Love Kitchen through a collection at the Bearden football game and a pancake breakfast.

This was the school's first year raising money and food donations for the Love Kitchen.
