Racing to Save Lives




The 36th annual Susan G. Komen Dallas Race for the Cure will take place October 27 at NorthPark Center.  The goal is to raise $1.5 million. Starting at 6 a.m., activities include registration, a survivor breakfast, timed 5k, 1k and 5k fun run/walk races at 8 a.m., and a stage presentation with a survivor celebration and awards.

Survivors, thrivers and co-survivors gather to celebrate and support one another in an atmosphere of genuine camaraderie. The Dallas Race for the Cure was started by Nancy Brinker, in honor of her sister, Susan Komen. The event started with a few runners and walkers, but now attracts thousands to fund life-saving breast health services to the underserved in Dallas County. This years’ race is a tribute to survivors and those living with metastatic breast cancer.

Registration is $40 for adults and $20 for12 and under; fees go up $5 on race day. To register, visit Komen-Dallas.org/dallasrace.
