Downtown Scranton
Runners/Walkers:  5K Walk/Run Starts at 8:30am

Thousands of men and women will be touched in one way or another by the dreadful hand of breast cancer, so we continue to run and walk for the cure.

The 27th Annual NEPA Komen Race for the Cure remembers those lost, honors those who survive, and raises important funds for mammograms, treatment, research and education.

Some important information is noted at the bottom of this post, please be sure to review them.

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 at:   The first 4,000 registrants get a free t-shirt and race bib.  Online discounts for children 13 and younger; and for Seniors 60 and older.

Race for the Cure 2017 offers more than a Race:  Pink Hair on the Square, Kids Fun Zone, Team Village and more!

Be a part of the “Survivor/Warrior/Forever Fighter” Experience.  As a registered survivor, you and a guest will have access to the “Survivor Breakfast” at 7:15am on Spruce Street, followed by a group survivor photo at the Pink Podium!

You can walk or run in honor – or memory – of someone.  Back signs will be available on race day at the registration tent.  Bring a friend, your family and your co-workers.  Make, keep and share a promise for a life free of breast cancer.

Too early on a Saturday for you?  Go online and register to be a  Virtual Walker!  You can support the Race from the comfort of your own bed.
