The Yankees hosted the first Damon Runyon 5K for Cancer Research this afternoon at the Stadium, with more than 2,500 participants helping raise more than $300,000 for scientists trying find a cure.

Check out this story for details on the race, which saw runners using the entire park – they circled the concourses and the field itself. Kudos, too, to the Yankees for being part of such a worthy cause.

When the new Stadium was built there was a lot of talk about how it needed to be more than just a baseball stadium. Football and hockey events will certainly be nice to see in the Bronx, but events like this one are even better.

That may be it for the blogging tonight. Enjoy the football game and check back tomorrow for the first of our award preview posts and then the announcement of the Rookies of the Year.
