Susan G. Komen WNY race registration set
The Western New York Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure has opened registration for the 2012 Susan G. Komen Western New York Race for the Cure. The race will take place Saturday, June 9 at 10 a.m., in the Delaware Park Rose Garden.
Participation is open to all who would like to run, walk, volunteer or donate. Last year, more than 7,500 participants joined the race and raised more than $658,000. The proceeds from the race benefit our local community with 75 percent of funds staying in Western New York. The remaining income went to the national Susan G. Komen for the Cure Grants Program to fund breast cancer research throughout the country. This year's goal is to raise more than $700,000.
This year's race fees for participants are as follows: adults, $25; youth (ages 6-13), $10 and children 5 and under are free. If participants would like to be timed, there is an additional $2 fee for timing chips. Prices will then go up after June 1, so early registration is encouraged. Participants may sign-up as individuals or form a team and all above age 5 will receive a free race T-shirt.
