2014 Komen Iowa Race for the Cure

October 4, 2014 - 7:00 am - 11:30 am at State of Iowa Capitol Grounds
1007 E Grand Avenue

Race for the Cure is an emotionally impactful event with images that can stay with you forever.  From the powerful visual impression of nearly 15,000 people at the start of the Race moving as one body for a single cause, to the emotion that you feel as fellow survivors greet each other after another successful year in battling their disease together, it is impossible to attend Race for the Cure without feeling moved.  This is an event where we all come together as a community to fight this terrible disease, and help put an end to breast cancer forever. www.komeniowa.org.
