It’s the 18th Annual Beat the Odds Run-Walk this Saturday in Petersburg. It’s the main fundraising event for the local organization that supports people who are dealing with cancer.

This year, the group gave out $26,000 to individuals and organizations that help others with cancer support.

Carin Christensen is a long-time member of the organization. She sat down with KFSK’s Angela Denning to talk about Beat the Odds.
