The I Care I Cure Childhood Cancer Foundation held its 6th Annual "I Care, I Cure, I Run 5K & Family Fun Day" on Sunday morning.
The event took place at the BB&T Center in Sunrise and began with a 5K for children and adults at 7:30 a.m. The race was followed by an expanded Family Fun Day with activities for kids, free food and entertainment.
The event was hosted by actress Bailee Madison, a resident of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea. Madison is part of the Disney Channel's Emmy-award winning "Wizards of Waverly Place."
