    MACON, Ga. -- People of all ages ran through downtown Macon and into Central City Park on Monday for the 42nd annual Macon Labor Day Road Race.

    WGXA were there as the last runner was cheered on through the finish line.

    One of the runners, McKenzie Lawyer-Davis, is a cancer survivor. She said that she ran today's race for more than just herself.

    "I run for me, but I run for those who can't run. And actually it's kind of special this week because I had a friend die from breast cancer this week and so I ran for her. And running is hard. I'm doing it. And I want to stay fit. And I'm cancer-free now and I want to do what I can to stay cancer free," said Lawyer-Davis.

    She said that Monday's 10k race was a qualifier for the Peachtree Race in Atlanta.
