FORT SMITH (KFSM) - At this year's Survivors' Challenge taking place race on Saturday, October 17th in Fort Smith, participants will see some changes as the event enters its 24th year. New this year, those who've registered will get a t-shirt and everyone who crosses the finish line receives a medal.

For a "5NEWS This Morning" segment that aired Sunday (October 11), anchor Daren Bobb spoke to Amy Willadsen of the Donald W. Reynolds Cancer Support House and John Zeigler, the race's chairman. Both said this is more of an awareness event celebrating those who've lived through breast cancer.
