Race For the Cure

Posted: Updated:

Downtown Lubbock will be packed with people this Saturday morning, October 5th.  Up to 8,000 people are expected to fill the streets in support of the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure.

That annual effort raises money that goes back into the community every year in the fight against breast cancer.

Becky Jones, co-chair of the event, says it is amazing how much this event has grown in 19 years.

"Actually, we went from $35,000 that we made our first year to now anticipating over hopefully, $485,000. And that all goes to fund programs here for our Lubbock community

You can still register for the race online or at the South Plains Mall during the next 3 days. The times to register are Noon to 7, Wednesday and Thursday, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday. Look for the Komen group in the old gap kids store by the women's Dillard's.

Or, you can register Saturday before the race. Just go to the civic center at 7:30. The race starts at 9 with several kids corral for families and strollers as well.
