NEPA Race for the Cure

Saturday, September 8, 2012

Downtown Scranton

Runners/Walkers:  8:30am

Thousands of men and women touched in one way or another by the dreadful hand of breast cancer will soon run and walk for the cure.

The 22nd Annual NEPA Komen Race for the Cure remembers those lost, honors those who survive, and raises important funds for mammograms, awareness, research and education.

There is nothing like the sight of thousands of people marching together toward a single purpose.  That’s what you experience when you join the WNEP family on the streets of Scranton.  Join us by pre-registering online.  The first 6,500 registrants get a free t-shirt!

Be sure to bring the kids for our Kids Corner – face-painting, mascots, and kids entertainment.

Too early on a Saturday for you?  Go online and register to Sleep-In-For-The-Cure!  You can support the Cure from the comfort of your own bed.

If you are so inclined, you can be an honored VIP “VERY IN THE PINK” participant.  You’ll get a parking pass, VIP Tent admission, Indoor restrooms, energy snacks and continental breakfast as well as an exclusive gift!  Go online and select Very In The Pink when you register.

You can walk or run in honor – or memory – of someone.  Bring a friend, your family and your co-workers.  Make, keep and share a promise for a breast cancer-free life.

All participants must register and wear your numbered bibs in order to receive free handouts.  You can register online thru September 6th, at The Mall at Steamtown packet pickup, or on race morning.

WNEP-TV is proud to be a Local Presenting Sponsor of the NEPA Race for the Cure.
