Race For the Cure - KCBD NewsChannel 11 Lubbock

Race For the Cure

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.
