Susan G. Komen, the world’s leading breast cancer organization, announced today that its signature fundraising event in Houston will be held in-person once again, after being held virtually last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Race for the Cure® HOUSTON will be held Oct. 2 at Sam Houston Park in downtown Houston, with the start line at Crosby Street and Allen Parkway. The Race/Walk distance is 3.1 miles and will be an out-and-back course on Allen Parkway as in past races.
While the event will be hosted in-person this year, there will also be a virtual option to participate in the program and connect with the community from your own home or neighborhood for those who prefer that option. Go to komen.org/houstonrace to sign up and begin fundraising.
