The 3,500 women who laced up their sneakers to take strides against breast cancer this September as part of the 30th annual Charlottesville Women's Four Miler raised a record $340,000.

Event organizers will present the funds to University of Virginia President Teresa A. Sullivan on Monday for use by the UVa Cancer Center's breast care program.

The popular fun run and walk has raised more than $2 million since its founding, according to a release. Last year's race brought in $40,000 more than the event did in 2011.

Funding from the run has helped the UVa Cancer Center bring mobile mammograms to low-income women, provide newly diagnosed cancer patients with self-help books and supported a study of the effects of exercise and acupuncture on cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy.
