The Cuyuna Riverwood Breast Health Alliance is organizing a team for the annual Brainerd Lakes Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure to be held from 8-10 a.m. Saturday, June 29, at Forestview Middle School in Baxter.

The 14th Annual Komen Brainerd Lakes Race for the Cure includes a 5K race, 5K walk and 1-mile walk as well as a Spirit Runner category for those who are unable to participate physically.

Also, children ages 2-10 can race as Kids for the Cure at age-appropriate distances and can enter another event for a single fee. Register online at and select “Breast Health Alliance Team Aitkin” or “Breast Health Alliance Team Crosby.” Fees range from $12 for children ages 2-10 to $20 to $25 for adults, depending on the activity chosen.

Registration fees increase after June 21.

The first 2,400 people registered will receive a Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure race T-shirt.
