The 14th annual Race for the Cure will be held March 16, 2013 in Girard Park, Lafayette, LA. This local race not only honors Breast Cancer Survivors, but raises needed funds that will be awarded through grants to local programs to provide breast cancer screening, treatment and education in an effort to increase survivorship of those diagnosed with this devastating disease. Since 1999, Komen Acadiana has awarded 2.7 million dollars to local programs.
Susan G. Komen and Race for the Cure merchandise can be purchased at Tri-Running located at 2813 Johnston St. in Lafayette through March 14th. Merchandise will also be available for purchase at Packet Pick Up on March 15th at the Crown Room in Lafayette and at Race for the Cure on March 16th.
