This, from the Susan G. Komen South Florida Race for the Cure®:   

On Saturday, January 28, 2017, thousands of breast cancer supporters, survivors and their loved ones will come together at the Meyer Amphitheatre for the 26th annual Susan G. Komen South Florida Race for the Cure®.  Runners, walkers, corporate and community teams and individuals of all ages are welcome to join the celebration that is so much more than a 5K, and show why they are part of the new More Than Pink™ movement that highlights the people who act, donate and get involved to help Komen achieve its goal to reduce the nation’s 40,000 cancer deaths by half in the next decade.

The event raises significant funds and awareness for the breast cancer movement, celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease.  There are two ways the Race makes the experience meaningful for all.

To help lighten the load on race morning, Komen is inviting participants and last minute registrants to visit one of their mall registration locations to pick up their race day packets or register onsite. By doing so, they will eliminate waiting in line of race morning to get their t-shirt and bib number.
