Courtesy of Komen Wyoming Race for the Cure

The 17th annual Susan G. Komen Wyoming Race for the Cure® is Saturday, August 11 at the Wyoming State Capitol in Cheyenne! Join thousands in Wyoming who will participate in the Race to eradicate breast cancer. You can register early online at www.komenwyoming.org.

The Race starts at 8 a.m. with registration starting at 6:30 a.m. at the State Parking Garage. Breast cancer survivors race free and are invited to attend a special breakfast Race morning starting at 6:30 a.m. followed by the survivor celebration at 7:15 a.m. Remember you can make a difference!
According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 330 new cases of breast cancer were diagnosed among Wyoming’s women and men in 2010 and approximately 60 died of the disease.

Last year thanks to the largest fundraiser, Race for the Cure, the grants programs through the Wyoming Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® were able to help detect 20 cancers, give 3,103 clinical breast exams, give 48 diagnostic services, and perform 1,195 mammograms in the state. Through events like the Wyoming Art for the Cure: A Celebration of Art and Life, the Komen Wyoming Race for the Cure® and PAWS for the Cure, the Wyoming Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® has invested over $2.5 million in local breast health and breast cancer awareness projects in Wyoming. Up to 75 percent of net proceeds generated by the Komen Wyoming Affiliate stay in the state. The remaining income goes to the national Susan G. Komen for the Cure Research & Grants Program for energizing science to find the cures.

The race route will begin on 24th Street in front of the Capitol; travel north on Carey Avenue to Pershing Blvd.; east on Pershing Blvd to Rollins Ave; south on Rollins to 21st Street; West on 21st to Capitol; and north on Capitol to the finish line on 24th Street. 25th street between Pioneer and Carey will be closed for the Race.
