HENDERSON, Tenn. - Hundreds of West Tennessee runners are showing support for one of their own who is battling cancer.

On Saturday morning, about 250 runners from Chester County and even other states participated in the Race for Hope.

The race is to honor Henderson resident Hope Shull, who has been battling ovarian cancer for a few years.

Participants raised more than $4,500 in Saturday's run for the Hope Program.

It is a partnership between the Henderson Church of Christ and Second Harvest Food Bank that sends food home to needy children through the Chester County school system each week.

Organizers said they hope to make this an annual event.
