Due to recent flooding at the original event site, Susan G. Komen®, the world’s leading breast cancer organization, announces a new location for the 2023 Race for the Cure, Viking Lakes. The Minnesota Race for the Cure is Susan G. Komen’s annual fundraising event honoring breast cancer survivors in a fun-filled day for the whole family.

“The 2023 Race for the Cure will raise critical funds that support breast cancer patients, research, and patient navigation services to better serve Minnesotans impacted by the disease.” said Alicia Gordon Macalus, State Executive Director of Susan G. Komen Minnesota. Participants can expect to enjoy an energizing warm up with moves from the Apple Valley Jazzercise and Hope Village, a gathering space to celebrate and honor those living with breast cancer and breast cancer survivors.

“We are thrilled to welcome the Susan G. Komen 2023 Race for the Cure to Viking Lakes and the campus will be ready to welcome all race participants in Eagan this Mother’s Day”, said Viking Lakes General Manager Kyle Chank. “We’re proud to welcome such a reputable, high-profile organization and we look forward to help the Susan G. Komen Foundation raise funds and support a cause that has affected so many of us.”

Midday host of KOOL 108FM, Lee Valsvik will serve as emcee of the 2023 Race for the Cure. The opening ceremony will also feature this year’s Race for the Cure Start and Finish Line sponsor Minneapolis Radiation Oncology’s (MRO) Dr. Stephanie Childs as honorary speaker. Sponsors for the event include Allina Health, Dick’s House of Sports, Freestyle Production, Inc, KOOL108, Northland Ford Dealers, myTalk, Faribault Foods, and Quantum Fiber.
