LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and that means you will be seeing a lot of pink in the coming weeks - especially Saturday during Lubbock's 15th annual Race for the Cure.
So far, more than 8,000 people on the South Plains have signed up for the annual walk. Organizers say they have already reached their fundraising goal of $400,000, but they say raising awareness is just as important and it's not too late to participate. You can register for the race at 6:30 a.m. Saturday morning at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center.
Then, Saturday afternoon, Red Raider fans can show their support for the Komen cause by wearing pink to the game. The effort is being called "Pack the Jones in Pink" and you can get your free pink Red Raider t-shirts from noon to 2 p.m. before the game at Jones AT&T Stadium.
