Race for the Cure: New venue, same important mission

We are less than a month away from the 15th annual Southern Arizona Race for the Cure. Mark your calendar for the morning of March 17. And if you haven't already, register for the race! (Click here to register.)

Last year, the race was held at Reid Park. This year, it will be held at the University of Arizona. The honorary race chair is Brigetta Barrett, the Olympic silver medalist and UA student!  The cause is important to her because her mother is a breast cancer survivor.

The Race for the Cure is the major fundraiser for the local Komen organization. Up to 75% of the money raised stays here and is used for funding grants to local providers for education, mammograms and treatment for the medically under served. The rest goes to fund research to find a cure for breast cancer.

Once again, KOLD is a sponsor of the race.  We hope to see you there!  You can register online at www.komensaz.org. Or, three Fry's grocery stores are holding special registrations this Friday and Saturday.  Click here for more information.  We also have much more information on the Tucson News Now Komen page.
