Consider This: Komen Race is Friday!

FOX19 - We are just days away from the 2015 Greater Cincinnati Komen Race for the Cure! If you haven't already—it's time to get your team together—start
raising money and help find a cure for breast cancer!

This year's race is this FRIDAY night, August 28, at Smale Riverfront Park in downtown Cincinnati.  Walk up registration opens at 4:30. The competitive 5K starts at 6:45 p.m. and the 5K walk starts at 7 p.m.

The Race for the Cure is the major fundraiser for the local Komen organization. Seventy five percent of the net proceeds stay in this area to fund grants
to local providers for education, free mammograms and the treatment of the medically underserved. The other 25 percent of the net income supports national research—some of which ends up right here in Cincinnati.

WXIX, FOX19 NOW is once again a proud sponsor of the race, and we hope to see you there.  For more information, go to See you Friday night!
