DENISON, TX -- Around 300 people gathered to show support for one of their own Saturday morning.
Denison leaders and business owners held a 5K race benefiting Buffy Hanson, owner of Buffy's Cupcakes.
She was diagnosed with breast cancer in January.
Many downtown Denison businesses put together teams to support her.
Organizers also held a silent auction...and accepted donations.
Buffy's daughter Macy said it was overwhelming to see how many people showed up.
"That's just so cool for my mom, to have everybody do that for her. To spend their morning up here. And have fun," Macy said.
