Miles for Moffitt raises $1 million for cancer research

Many of the people who took part in this year's event had personal reasons to run.

TAMPA - The 12th annual Miles for Moffitt event raised more than $1 million for cancer research.

Thousands of runners ran through the University of South Florida’s campus in Saturday morning’s races, which included a 5K, 10K, a wheelchair race, a one-mile fun run and a kids’ dash.

The event has raised more than $3.2 million since 2011 to fund cancer research at the Moffitt Cancer Center, according to organization’s website.

Participants, volunteers and organizers used #MilesForMoffitt on social media to document the event.
