Youth registration is $20 until May 31, $25 from June 1 through September 30 and $35 starting October 1.

Komen reduce the burden of breast cancer in Nevada,” said Cindy Carano, Executive Director of Community Relations for the Eldorado, Silver Legacy and Circus Circus Reno. “Last year’s Race for the Cure was a heartwarming experience for myself and our team members and we look forward to connecting with our community again this year.”
