Pink Ribbon Tributes

This year the Susan G. Komen foundation will have pink and white ribbons at the race in honor and memory of those who have fought breast cancer. If you are interested in purchasing one of these ribbons in honor or memory of someone then click here and then the tab on the left that says Pink Ribbon Tributes.


I will bring everyone's Race For The Cure T-shirts on October 9th so if you just want to come wearing a shirt that you can put the team shirt over then that would be great!

The earliest "event" that you will need to be at is the team photo which we are scheduled to take at 8:15 am at the Team's Tent which will be on the northwest quadrant of Linn Park. It will be very well marked.

If you want to participate in some of the earlier morning activities, below are some things you might be interested in:
