The 22nd annual Susan G. Komen North Texas Plano Race for the Cure will be held June 9, in Plano. The race celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those that have lost their battle with the disease by raising funds and awareness of breast cancer through a series of run/walks. Race options include a 5K competitive run, 5K casual walk/run and a 1-mile Family Fun Run/Walk. The concrete course winds through the Plano campus of HP and The Campus at Legacy. The competitive run is USAT&F certified, with award-eligible chip timing available.
Race day registration begins at 6 a.m., with the competitive start at 7:55 a.m., followed by the casual 5K at 8:05 a.m. and the family fun run/walk at 8:30 a.m. Pets, bicycles and inline skates are not allowed. A Survivor Celebration and awards ceremony begins at 9:45 a.m.
The Komen North Texas Race for the Cure hopes to raise $300,000 this year. The recently expanded North Texas Affiliate service area now includes Collin, Denton, Grayson, Cooke, Fannin, Hunt, Montague and Wise counties.
