October, Breast Cancer Awareness month, gets started with a bang.
Proceeds from this event will benefit breast cancer patients, survivors and research. Seventy-five percent of the proceeds raised from this run/walk will remain here in central Florida with the remaining 25 percent going to national research efforts.
The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series is the largest 5k/fitness walks organization in the world. They’ve grown from one race and 800 participants in 1983 to multiple races across the world with thousands of participants.
And this is just the beginning. As the weather begins to cool more 5k run/walks, bike rides and fitness related fundraisers will be taking place. Keep an eye out here for event listings and tips on training.
