Before the race began, the David Cook Team for a Cure was pronounced the top fundraiser for the event for the third year in a row.
Including David’s Friday night Concert for Hope, the team raised more than $160,000 toward the event’s goal of raising $2.3 million to fight brain cancer and provide services to families affected by the disease.
Without the concert, David’s Team for a Cure had pledged more than $115,500 as of this afternoon, and there was still time to donate.
In second place with more than $107,000 raised was Cassidy Turley, a Baltimore-based commercial real estate services firm.
“Such an amazing day!” David tweeted a couple of hours ago. “Thanks to everyone who came out and/or donated.”
The counter there indicates the event is still just a little shy of its $2.3 million goal.
Meanwhile, here’s David being introduced, then talking about the event before the 5K began.
