MANCHESTER - While the Komen Vermont Race for the Cure is only days away, there is still plenty of time to register for the 5K walk or as a runner in either the 5K or 10K races.

Those wishing to participate may register in person at the race site, Hildene Meadows, on River Road in Manchester, from 12 to 6 p.m. on Friday the Sept. 20, as well as on race day, starting at 7:30 a.m. For those who can't make it to the Race but would like to make a difference, they can register online as a Virtual Runner.

It's important to remember that participation in either the walk or run directly impacts the health and wellbeing of countless women, men and children in Vermont and New Hampshire. Thanks to last year's Racers, Rompers (the Tubbs Snowshoe event on Stratton) and Riders (horseback fundraising rides in Vermont and New Hampshire), Komen Vermont New Hampshire was able to recently grant $450,000 to 16 breast cancer programs in the two states. Get more information about the race and register online at www. komenvtnh.org or call 802-362-2733.
