Besides raising money to support breast cancer research, the Susan G. Komen foundation is also teaching people about the disease.

One of the most popular tents at the 400 block today was the "I am the Cure" educational program.

It shares what both men and women need to do to prevent breast cancer and catch the disease early on.

Like everyone in attendance, the co-chairs of the program were happy to support the survivors.

"The opportunity to share with the community the importance of this cause, as well as sharing with the survivors and celebrating them," co-chairs Amanda Patterson and Jill Depke said.

Experts say breast cancer is highly preventable if caught early, and people with stage 1 breast cancer have a 99% cure rate.

The program's key messages suggest you see your doctor, get mammograms and start the fight by living right.
