This year’s Komen Kansas Wichita Race for the Cure happens Saturday, Sept. 29, at Towne East Square, 7700 E. Kellogg Drive.
The event, which has a goal of raising $225,000, most of which is used for local breast cancer education, screening and treatment programs, offers four ways for all ages to participate:
▪ 5K competitive and non-competitive run, 8 a.m.: The course starts and ends at Towne East Square and goes through the nearby Eastborough neighborhood.
▪ Kids for the Cure, 50 Yard Dash, 9:30 a.m.: Open to kids 12 and under. Parental supervision is required.
▪ Family fun walk, 10:30 a.m.: Take a 1-mile walk through the Eastborough neighborhood.
▪ Sleep in for the Cure: This option is for those who can’t make the event or would rather hit the snooze button on a Saturday morning.
Survivors can participate in additional activities, including a free drop-in breakfast for a survivor and one guest from 7 to 9:15 a.m. A survivor photo happens at 9:30, while the survivor parade starts at 9:45 a.m.
