Please join us in celebrating the inaugural Color Me For a Cure 5K benefiting the Northeast Louisiana Affiliate of Susan G. Komen. This event will be held in Ruston, Louisiana and is similar to a traditional 5K run/walk with the fun twist of having colored powders thrown on you at each kilometer mark of the race course. The Color Me For a Cure 5K is set for March 15, 2014 at 9am. Registration is $35 for adults and $20 for youth 12 and under online until March 12th. To register for the Color Me For a Cure 5K online go to www.komennela.org.
Proceeds from the Color Me For a Cure 5K fund research efforts and local breast health and breast cancer outreach programs. A majority of the proceeds fund community projects related to breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment. Such projects are based on the specific needs of each community as determined by a need assessment performed by each local Komen Affiliate. Up to 75% of net proceeds generated by the Affiliate stay in Northeast Louisiana with the remaining income going to the national Susan G. Komen Grants Program to fund research.
