Komen St. Louis Race for the Cure
More than 40,000 Americans will die from breast cancer this year, making it the second-leading cause of cancer death among women in the country.
You can help fight the disease by joining the Siteman Cancer Center for the Komen St. Louis Race for the Cure on June 14 in downtown St. Louis. This year marks the 16th anniversary of the event. Participants can select from several race options, including:
- A timed 5K run ($35 entry fee)
- A noncompetitive 5K run/walk ($30 entry fee)
