In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Baton Rouge is going virtual in 2021. 

Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is hosting its annual event virtually in 2021. On Sat., February 27, virtually join others around the Baton Rouge area in the fight against breast cancer. 

On race day, download the ‘Race for the Cure’ mobile app where you will unlock access to the event.

According to the Race for the Cure website, guests will “hear stories from survivors and those living with breast cancer, to learn about the impact of Komen’s research discoveries, public policy advocacy and direct patient support services and to celebrate your fundraising success.”
