Save The Ta-Ta’s!!
Today was the official 2019 Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure! The event was held in downtown Columbus and more than 21,000 people took to the city streets wearing pink to show their support for the movement, making it the largest in the country!
The event began at 7 a.m. with the Expo, and the 5K race started at 8:45 a.m. The family fun walk began at 9 a.m.
More than $1.3 million had been raised, which has well surpassed the organization’s goal. The money raised goes toward local breast cancer programming for underserved and underinsured women and global research.
The race had a total of 21,050 participants registered for the Komen Columbus Race for the Cure. There were more than 400 corporate, civic and individual teams participated — including the largest corporate team in the world, Team L Brands with 9,842 team members. More than 200 A.D. Farrow Harley Davidson riders comprised Thunder Tunnel over the Broad Street Bridge. Approximately 500 volunteers helped put on the Komen Columbus Race for the Cure! What a great wave of support!
