Every time I see something get postponed or cancelled because of the pandemic it makes me think about how many people are actually affected. Event organizers, sponsors, attendees, recipients of money that would be raised - it's a bummer for a lot of people for different reasons. Thankfully, we've seen a lot of events be able to adapt to the craziness of 2020 and move to a virtual platform. The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure will follow the same structure for the Missoula race this year.

I heard a commercial for the race today and part of it included the Susan G. Komen organization's goal to reduce the number of breast cancer deaths in the U.S. by 50% by 2026. How amazing would it be to hit that goal? Money raised from the Missoula race, and races across the country, help aid in that effort.

This year's race takes place on Saturday, October 10. Because of COVID-19, in-person participation will be limited to the Race Expo Parade on the morning of the 10th.

From the Susan G. Komen website:

Race Expo Parade
October 10, 9am-11am
University of Missoula, Parking Lot P/Adams Center Parking Lot

The Race Expo Parade is an opportunity for Missoula Race for the Cure participants to come together on Race Day, in a safe manner, and celebrate with fellow survivors, support those currently battling breast cancer, and remember those we have lost to the disease. Participants will drive thru the Race Expo to pick up their Race shirt, awards, and items from sponsors and vendors. We encourage participants to decorate their cars and have fun with the parade.

Find out how you can participate in this year's race with details from the Facebook event page and the Susan G. Komen website.
