A record field of runners and walkers braved sub-freezing temperatures and a withering northwestly breeze on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28, to complete the 13th annual Run for a Cure road race in Roxbury.

A New Milford High School sophomore and a former rower at the University of Connecticut were the top runners.

Stosh Davis, a member of the New Milford High School boys' cross country team, was the overall winner with a time of 17:20 for the three-mile course, which started and finished near the Roxbury Congregational Church.

Leah Masopust, 25, who competed in crew at UConn, was the first female finisher with her 20th-place overall performance at 20:17 in the field of 195 finishers.

The turnout exceeded last year's then-record 169 finishers.

Many more participated as walkers.

The $2,558 in proceeds will go to the Regional Cancer Center center at New Milford Hospital, the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life and to purchase a new digital stopwatch for the weekly Roxbury road race series.

The runners in the series, the church and the Roxbury Recreation Commission co-sponsored the event.
