Susan G. Komen South Florida is making it easier than ever to join the Race for the Cure on Saturday, Jan. 27. Registration pop-ups started appearing all over Palm Beach County and Stuart beginning Jan. 20. Fees start at $10 for children, $35 for untimed participants and $40 for timed participants. Registration is also available online at www.komensouthflorida.org/race.
Locally, a pop-up registration event will be held in Wellington on Thursday, Jan. 25 from noon to 7 p.m. at Fit2Run in the Mall at Wellington Green (10300 W. Forest Hill Blvd.).
All of the race’s net proceeds are allocated to Komen’s mission. Seventy-five percent of the net income stays in the South Florida community to help fund local programs offering breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment, and 25 percent supports critical research through the Susan G. Komen Grants Program, impacting breast cancer patients locally and around the world.
