Save the date for Austin’s 17th annual Race for the Cure – November 15th 2015 in downtown Austin!
If you are interested in becoming a sponsor please email email@example.com or call 512.473.0900 for details.
The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series is the world’s largest and most successful fundraising and education event for breast cancer ever created. Your participation in this event enables us to power the promise our organization was founded on – the promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever. Not a runner? No problem! You can participate by walking our 5K or Family 1 Mile course.
Remember that 75% of funds raised here stay here. Komen Austin funding provides life-saving screenings, treatment, follow-up care and more to uninsured and under-insured men and battling breast cancer in Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis and Williamson counties. The remaining 25% solely funds breast cancer research.
Registration will be available in Fall 2015.
