WEBSTER, N.Y. (WROC) – A benefit race was held Saturday morning to support a Webster man who’s battling cancer. More than 150 people took part in the race all to help raise money to support Steve Yacoub as he continues to battle Stage 4 colon cancer.
The 3k race was followed by three one-mile walks each lasting half an hour in the Eastwood Estates neighborhood by Bannerwood Drive. The event also had 20 gift baskets raffled out.
Organizers said the event raised approximately $1,800 for Steve and his family.
The event was organized by Lindsay Ortega, Robyn Roberts-Grant and Aisha Roberts-Grant.
A GoFundMe page was also set up to help pay for Steve’s medical expenses.
