Susan G. Komen Philadelphia Race for the Cure
The 24th annual 5K run/walk to fight breast cancer
May 11, 2014
Race starts at 8:15 a.m.
This Mother’s Day, the Philadelphia Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure invites everyone in the Delaware Valley and beyond to “Embrace the Honor and Empower the Promise” to end breast cancer at the annual Komen Philadelphia Race for the Cure.
The festivities take place at Eakins Oval at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. For the past 24 years, the Komen Philadelphia Race for the Cure has been more than simply a 5K run and 5K walk. It’s a Mother’s Day tradition, with families, co-workers and best friends of all ages gathering together in the movement to fight breast cancer.
Giveaways, family entertainment and more
The Susan G. Komen Philadelphia Race for the Cure begins at 6 a.m. with a special Survivors’ breakfast at Eakins Oval and concludes just before 10 a.m.
In addition to the 5K run/walk, the morning’s events will include a one-mile Fun Walk, sponsor booths with giveaways, raffles, award ceremony, motivating speeches from numerous officials and celebrities, family entertainment, prize drawings and award presentations.
