Pink out Downtown Alexandria at the 8th Annual Race for the Cure and Family Fun Day!

Alexandria, Louisiana, (4-24-2017) Susan G. Komen® Acadiana will kick off Race registration and is gearing up for its 8th Annual Susan G. Komen Acadiana Race for the Cure® CENLA. This year, Komen Acadiana will be “Pinking out Downtown Alexandria.” On October 7, 2017, Downtown Alexandria will welcome a wave of pink runners, all joining together to raise funds for local community grants and lifesaving research to one day bring an end to breast cancer, forever.

Race for the Cure® CENLA is one of Komen Acadiana’s largest annual fundraisers. Seventy Five Percent (75%) of the net proceeds raised through this event helps fund local community grants in and around Acadiana for breast cancer education, screening, patient navigation, treatment and support services. The remaining twenty-five percent (25%) goes to a National Research Foundation, and funds lifesaving research to find cures for breast cancer.

This year, Race Day Registration and the Event Expo will open at 6:30am, and will include a Survivor Celebration, Team Tailgate, Kids Korner, and much more. The Races will kickoff at 8:30 am, with the 5k Fun run/ walk starting at 8:30am, and the one mile fun run/walk to follow. Post-Race, there will be an award ceremony.
