Cancer patients complete 5K race inside hospital due to rain

ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) — Dozens of patients completed the Winship Win The Fight 5K inside Emory University Hospital after the outdoor event was cancelled due to rain.

WSB-TV ( ) reports the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University’s 5K race was scheduled to begin Saturday at 7 a.m. at Emory University’s McDonough Field. However, rain in the area forced organizers to cancel the outdoor race. Instead, patients decided to walk laps on three floors of Emory University Hospital to complete the race.

The competition allows participants to direct their tax-deductible donations to benefit specific cancer research based on their personal interests, WSB-TV reports.
