Join UNMC/TNMC Race for the Cure team on Oct. 5 
Think of eight women you know. One of them very well may be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. The Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure was established as a promise between two sisters to end breast cancer forever. This is the 15th year the Race For The Cure is being held in Omaha! Online registration is now available for the Race for The Cure to benefit the Nebraska affiliate of Susan G. Komen Foundation. We hope you consider being a part of the UNMC/The Nebraska Medical Center team and encourage your family members and friends to join the team as well.
