Race For The Cure 2013

The 17th annual Komen Race For The Cure in Wichita Falls is scheduled for Saturday, October 12. Opening ceremonies start at 8 a.m. The race begins at the MPEC on Lamar and 5th Street in downtown Wichita Falls.

Registration for people 18 and younger is $20. The fee to register for people older than 18 is $30.

More than 2,500 participated in last year's race; more than 3,000 are expected to participate in 2013. The 2012 race raised nearly $180,000. Of those funds, 75% of the proceeds went to fund local breast cancer screening, special treatment programs, and education. 25% benefited Komen breast cancer research grants.

The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation Wichita Falls Race for the Cure is reportedly the city's largest footrace and 5K run/walk. The race raises money and awareness about the fight against breast cancer, celebrates breast cancer survivors, and honors those who have lost their battle with the deadly disease.

With a 5K run/walk along with a one mile run/walk as options for participants, the race gives Texomans a chance to take part in the event, regardless of fitness level.

The "Tunnel of Pink" will be an optional additional event at this year's race. It is a color run where participants can "get their pink on."

Stormi Bryant, this year's Wichita Falls Race Chair, joined us live on Newschannel 6 Sunday Morning to promote the event. To watch that interview, play the video above.
