This Mother's Day, thousands of breast cancer survivors, patients, their friends and their families are running and walking to help find a cure.

The 20th annual Y-Me Race at your Pace takes place on Sunday, May 8, in Chicago's Grant Park.

ABC7 reporter Evelyn Holmes and photographer Mike Locashio will be among those running a 5K to support the national Y-ME organization. It provides peer-to-peer counseling, and breast cancer survivors answer the hotline 24/7. Support is available in more than 150 languages.

The Y-ME hotline is (800) 221-2141. For Spanish speakers, it's (800) 986-9505.
