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 15 in downtown St. Louis. This year marks the 15th 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)
- Sleep in for a Cure, for those who are unable to participate but still want to support the cause ($35 entry fee for those who have their T-shirts mailed to them; $30 for those who pick up their shirts)
