BERKELEY HEIGHTS -

Hundreds of people took steps to support those affected by cancer while celebrating Mother's Day.

On Sunday, the Summer Area YMCA 5K run began and ended at Memorial Field in Berkley Heights.

Dozens of runners and families attended the run, including kids.  About a dozen women who survived cancer participated in the event.

Many said they were thankful to the YMCA’s Livestrong program, a free 12-week program that helps cancer patients recover in body and mind.
