It could be a record-breaking event as thousands of racers lace up their shoes for an annual fundraiser in Sioux Falls.
On Sunday, the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure will take place in downtown Sioux Falls at Falls Park.
This is only the second Race for the Cure we have had in Sioux Falls. But this year, officials think they will do even better than last. That’s because this event has become an important one to the cancer community.
This year, organizers are expecting at least 4,000 people to be here for the big race. Last year, nearly 3,000 people participated in the race.
75-percent of the funds raised at this event stay here in South Dakota. The remaining 25-percent will go to support national research; however the national Komen organization has awarded more than $1 million to South Dakota scientists.
You can register online for the race through Friday or at 7 a.m. on Sunday morning before it begins.
The race starts at 9 a.m. Runners and walkers have a choice between a 5k and one mile.
