Join NBC 5 and Susan G. Komen North Texas for the 2nd Annual Denton Race for the Cure on Saturday, September 29 at South Lakes Park in Denton.

The Denton Race for the Cure will feature a 1-Mile Family Fun Run/Walk, Competitive 5K, Casual 5K Run/Walk, Kids 50-yard dash, Elizabeth’s Garden tribute area and much more! Chip timing will also be available. People of all ages and abilities are welcome to walk, run and join in the celebration!

Breast cancer is the second most common form of cancer among women in the United States. However, it can affect anyone regardless of age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location. Thanks to increased awareness, early detection, improved treatment methods and increased access to health services, people have a much greater chance of survival than ever before.

Komen North Texas is the go-to resource for breast health services for people without adequate finances or insurance. This year, Komen North Texas has invested $750,000 in breast health programs for residents of Collin, Cooke, Denton, Fannin, Grayson, Hunt, Montague, and Wise counties. Proceeds from the Denton Race for the Cure help to fund scientific research as well as local mammography, surgeries, chemotherapy, radiation treatments, support services and much more.
