YANKEE STADIUM -

The halls of Yankee Stadium were packed Saturday for a 5K run raising money for cancer research.

The Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation organized the run, which is the only run held at Yankee Stadium. Runners were all awarded a medal as they crossed the finish line.

Runners and walkers had to climb up stairs and run down ramps to complete the race. They also had to run around the bases.

News 12's Juan De Jesus ran the 5K in honor of his mother, who is battling cancer.
