Komen Race for the Cure-Boise: Postponed
This morning, Susan G. Komen Idaho Montana announced that this year's Komen Race for the Cure, previously scheduled for May 9, will be postponed until August 29.
In addition to a press release, this message was put out on Facebook from the local chapter.
The impact that Susan G. Komen has goes far beyond the good times we all have at the actual Race for the Cure. All money raised locally stays to fund local research and screenings for Idaho & Montana women.
104.3 WOW Country and all of our Townsquare Media Boise sister stations can't wait for you to join us on August 29.
