MANCHESTER - The 21st annual Komen Vermont Race for the Cure at Hildene Meadows in Manchester on Saturday, Sept. 21, needs volunteers. This year, in addition to the traditional 5K race and walk, a 10K race will be run.

Volunteers come in all ages, shapes, sizes, colors and genders, and their tasks can range from staffing a raffle ticket table for a few hours in August or September prior to race day, to helping to direct traffic or handing out water on race day.

Prior to the race, on Thursday, Sept 19, and Friday, Sept. 20, several people will be needed to help set up.

Those who would like to volunteer should visit to register on-line (click on Komen Race for the Cure tab).

Email Volunteer Chair Mary Miller at, or call her at 802-362-0108 with questions. For more information, people may also contact the Race office at 802-362-2733.

In 2012, $450,000 was granted to 16 organizations in the two states - while the remaining 25 percent is dedicated to breast cancer research.
