KANSAS CITY, Mo. - It takes hundreds of volunteers and runners to make the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure a success each year.
More than 25,000 people are expected to come out for the race. All the proceeds are spent on breast cancer research in the Kansas City area.
"We granted back nearly a million dollars to local Kansas City non-profits this year to do some of that screening, that treatment, that breast cancer education and awareness that is just so essential to saving women’s lives," Develoment Director Carli Good said.
The race starts at 7:30 a.m. at Union Station.
There will be live music, a survivor pavilion and activities for kids.
Online registration for the race is closed, but you can still register before the race.
