komenActress Gabrielle Union joined 24,000 participants, including 1,600 breast cancer survivors, at the 20th annual Susan G. Komen New York City Race for the Cure in Central Park.

Union, who advocates for breast cancer awareness in memory of a friend who recently died from the disease, presented the Co-Survivor Award to Bert Paolucci who has supported his wife and mother-in-law during their battles with the disease.

Union also spoke from the starting line of the event before walking the 5K (3.1 mile) course through Central Park with her team, Gabby’s Circle of Promise.

The Komen New York City Race for the Cure hopes to raise $6 million in support of breast health education, screening and treatment in the five boroughs of New York City, on Long Island and in Westchester and Rockland Counties along with national breast cancer research.
