Register now to help defeat breast cancer

We are only a couple weeks away from the 16th annual Southern Arizona Race for the Cure. If you haven't already, it is time to register!            

Once again, the race is being held at the University of Arizona.  The date is set for March 30.

This year's honorary race chair has a deep history with UA. Rocky LaRose is a former deputy director of Arizona's Athletics Department. She is also 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, free mammograms and treatment for the medically under served. The rest goes toward funding research to find a cure for breast cancer. Some of that research money even comes back to UA.

KOLD is again a proud sponsor of the race and we hope to see you there.  You can register online at www.komensaz.org. We also have much more information on our website at http://www.tucsonnewsnow.com/story/25007054/susan-g-komen-race-for-the-cure-information.
