April 13, 2014
Ocean City is excited to announce the third annual Susan G. Komen Maryland Ocean City Race for the Cure®! Join Komen Maryland on Sunday, April 13, in downtown OC to help raise breast cancer awareness.
Start a team, join a friend's, or join as an individual. You can participate in one of two different Race events: the 5K (3.1 miles) Timed Race and Recreational Run or the Family Fun Walk.
It's a great time for a great cause!
KOMEN RACE FOR THE CURE AND MARYLAND
The Race for the Cure began in Maryland as a 2,200-participant 5K in 1993 and blossomed into the largest footrace in the state of Maryland. After the first Race, the Maryland affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® was founded in 1993.
Of the money raised through the Komen Maryland Race for the Cure events each year, 75% of the net funds stays in Maryland to fund local programs for women and families. The remaining 25% of funding supports national research to find the cures for breast cancer. And now Race for the Cure is coming back to Ocean City to help spread awareness and support across Maryland's Eastern Shore. So grab your friends and family and register today!
