Komen Northern Nevada Race for Cure Opens Early-Bird Registration

From the Susan G. Komen Northern Nevada:

Earlybird registration opens May 16 for Northern Nevada’s 16th Annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.  To celebrate this “Sweet Sixteen” milestone, the Northern Nevada affiliate invites the public to 16 days of a 16 percent race registration discount for the 2014 Race for the Cure scheduled for Sunday, October 5, at the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino.

Online registration for the 2014 Race for the Cure will open Friday, May 16 at 6:00 a.m. Using the code “SWEET16” registrants will receive a 16 percent discount off the full-price registration fee of $45 per person. This early-bird offer will last for 16 days, ending at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, June 1. Runners and walkers alike can sign up as teams or individuals, and opt to participate in either a 5-K or one mile run/walk.

Susan G. Komen Northern Nevada raises significant funds every year that help save women’s lives, distributing hundreds of thousands of dollars to the community to fund education, screening and treatment of breast cancer. The majority of that funding is raised at the Race for the Cure, the affiliate’s largest fundraising event.

“Each year, thousands of women’s lives are impacted because of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. This is truly a community event, and has turned into a celebration for so many who look forward to the first Sunday in October as an opportunity to generate critical financial support that creates survivors, not patients,” said Niki Patin, executive director of Susan G. Komen Northern Nevada.

More than 75 percent of the funds raised at the race are reinvested into the local community. The rest goes to fund national breast cancer research.

But more than a simple fundraiser, the Race for the Cure is a chance for cancer survivors to support each other, family members to remember a loved one, and for the community to rally around those fighting the disease.

Online registration and more information for the “Sweet Sixteen” 16th Annual Susan G. Komen Northern Nevada Race for the Cure can be found at www.komennorthnv.org.
