Susan G. Komen for the Cure cancels 7 walks after drop in donations


DALLAS, TX (WKOW) -- The Susan G. Komen Foundation is canceling some of its signature races next year because of a drop in donations.

The foundation announced the three-day races in Boston, Tampa Bay, Chicago, Cleveland, San Francisco, Arizona, and Washington D.C. won't be held in 2014. The races will still go on this year. The event will also continue in seven other cities.

Some supporters pulled their money from the group after it tried to cut its funding for Planned Parenthood.
