Pace Races for the Cure 2016

News Story

September is just around the corner and it's almost time to race for the cure. Register today and join the Pace team in the fight against breast cancer on September 10.

In 2016, it is estimated that there will be 246,660 new cases of invasive breast cancer and 40,450 breast cancer deaths among US women alone. For men, it’s estimated that there will be 2,600 new cases and 440 deaths. On Saturday, September 10, step out with the Pace Community as we run for life at the 26th annual Susan G. Komen Greater NYC: Race for the Cure in Central Park. Breast cancer is hard. This is a walk in the park.

Since 1990, Komen Greater NYC has raised $80 million and awarded $50 million in grants to local breast health programs for underserved and at-risk women, as well as invested in cutting-edge research to find the cures.

Last year, with 120 participants, Pace University once again fielded the largest team from a university or college. And we want to keep this streak going!

So what are you waiting for?

Register online here or by going to www.komennyc.org/race and searching for the “Pace University” team.

Participants will receive:

> A commemorative t-shirt

> Goody bag

> Breakfast

> Transportation from PLV to Central Park
