Cleveland councilman wants funding pulled from annual Race for a Cure event

Cleveland's Annual Race for the Cure could be in jeopardy.

Councilman Zack Reed doesn't want to give the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation a permit. He's upset the group is pulling its funding from Planned Parenthood.

"We're not saying you can't have the race and you can't have the March. You can have it in Rocky River, Westlake, Legacy Village," said Councilman Zack Reed. 

We reached out to the mayor's office and they released this statement:

"Mayor Jackson has no intention of denying a permit for the Susan G. Komen Race for the cure. He supports this race and the people it helps. The Mayor has attended and participated in this event for many years."
Press Secretary Andrea V. Taylor.
