Mark your calendars for the 2013 Komen Central Texas Race for the Cure! Saturday, September 21 at Heritage Square in downtown Waco!
The Komen Central Texas Race for the Cure® is an annual 1K and 5K fundraising walk/run event held at Heritage Square in downtown Waco. The event is a co-ed race and great fun for the entire family.The 2013 Race is in its 13th year and is part of a national 5K series sponsored by Susan G. Komen. The goal of the event is to raise funds, heighten awareness and educate people about breast health as well as to recognize and celebrate breast cancer survivorship.
How the Race Funds are Used:
Seventy-five percent of the net income from the Komen Central Texas Race stays in the local community to fund breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment projects. The remaining twenty-five percent helps fund groundbreaking breast cancer research.
The Race is the largest fundraising event for local breast cancer screening, treatment, education and research in the Central Texas Area. Our service area includes Bell, Coryell, Falls, McLennan and Milam counties. Komen Central Texas recently invested $118,340 into our community for these vital services.
We hope that you will join us and encourage your friends, family and co-workers to register as well. This is a great time to rally behind a breast cancer patient and help support someone who has battled the disease.
