Race for the cure

Mira Costa 10th grader Jenna Tong won this year’s Women’s Division 5K at the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure at Dodger Stadium. The event was held March 14 and is part of a series of fundraisers dedicated to the fight against breast cancer.

Tong is a distance runner on the Costa track team. She was presented her first place trophy by KCAL 9 news anchor Sylvia Lopez at the awards ceremony and dedicated the victory to her aunt, who is a breast cancer survivor.
