The Susan B. Komen Race for the Cure is On
While the Komen Vermont Race for the Cure is only days away, there is still plenty of time to register for the 5K walk, or as a runner in either the 5K or 10K races. Online registration at komenvtnh.org is open until midnight, September 19. You may register in person at the race site, Hildene Meadows, River Road, Manchester, Vt., 12 to 6 on Friday September 20, as well as on race day, starting at 7:30 a.m.
If you can’t make it to the Race but would like to make a difference, register online as a Virtual Runner.
It’s important to remember that your participation directly affects the health and wellbeing of countless women, men and children in Vermont and New Hampshire. Thanks to last year’s Racers, Rompers (the Tubbs Snowshoe event on Stratton) and Riders (horseback fundraising rides in Vermont and New Hampshire), Komen Vermont New Hampshire was recently able to grant $450,000 to 16 breast cancer programs in the two states. Get more information about the race and register online at komenvtnh.org or call 802-362-2733.
