CLIFTON PARK -- September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
Hundreds gathered Sunday in Clifton Park for the eighth annual Nick's Run To Be Healed event.
In addition to the big race, there was a 5K walk, a carnival, and plenty of activities for kids.
The run was started in memory of Nick Cammarata, who was 13 years old when he passed away in October 2008 after a battle with leukemia.
“We wanted to do something in his name, because Nick was always very giving,” said Janine Cammarata. “We found that there was a lot of services that could have made his life easier, and our lives easier, so we give back in order to heal and help others.”
All of the money raised Sunday goes to benefit Nick's Fight To Be Healed Foundation, which combats childhood cancer.
