Goldstein wore no. 222 for the amount of races he's run to promote awareness of the rare male breast cancer. The New Jersey resident was diagnosed 24 years ago. He wore a shirt with the words, "Male Breast Cancer, Rare but There," on the back. More than 22,000 participants raised $3 million for fighting breast cancer.

With one day remaining until the Susan. G Komen Race for the Cure, organizers say participation numbers are still down at least 15% compared to last year.
Officials say this may result in a $50,000 loss in funds used to provide men and women in El Paso with free mammograms, diagnostic services, breast cancer treatment and transportation services for the uninsured and underserved.
Walk up registration for the race will be held on Saturday, February 16, from 10am to 6pm at Cielo Vista Mall.
Registration for the race will also be available on Sunday before the race at Cohen Stadium from 6am to 8am.
