Susan G. Komen®, the world’s leading breast cancer organization, today announced that it will hold a Race for the Cure at LaSalle Park in Metairie, LA on Saturday, October 29, 2022. The Race for the Cure will be the first in-person race since 2019.
“We are excited to welcome Race participants in person this year and grateful for the opportunity to provide a community for anyone who has been impacted by breast cancer. Whether you are in treatment, celebrating survivorship, or a family member, friend or loved one, we hope you will join us in October and be part of our collective efforts to end breast cancer forever,” said Danny Aguirre, Executive Director of Louisiana at Susan G. Komen.
“We welcome all the members of our breast cancer community honoring friends, family and anyone who has been impacted by the disease,” said Aguirre. “The Race for the Cure is about making strides toward curing breast cancer and the funds raised through registrations and sponsorships will give more individuals who have been impacted by the disease access to resources and the support they need now.”
The Power of ONE Week – a week’s worth of events to honor those who have been impacted by breast cancer – will precede the Race. A schedule and additional details will be announced soon.
