(Toledo News Now) -
For nearly a decade Bob Wambold has made it his mission to be a part of the Susan G. Komen Race for The Cure 5K. Wambold a former teacher and announcer has a very unique position with the organization.
"To call this my life mission would be an understatement. I look forward to this," Wambold said.
Wambold walks in and out of the crowd during the race and interviews cancer survivors. Wambold remembers his friend Paula at the race a few years ago. He didn't know she had cancer.
"When I turned around, I said Paula I'm sorry. I just did not know," Wambold said.
Once Wambold is through with his interviews, he literally walks to the finish line and calls out each survivors name as they cross it. Wambold says year after year the women say something different as they cross the finish line.
"Some of them are timid believe it or not. In fact I've had families actually push them over to me," Wambold said.
Wambold whose cousin is battling breast cancer is looking forward to the day this deadly disease can be cured.
"That would be awesome. So many lives would be saved and the pain of dealing with someone that has it would vanish," Wambold said.
You can catch Bob Wambold and hundreds of volunteers at the Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure on Sunday September 29th in Downtown Toledo.
