The Komen Bayou Region Race for the Cure is more than just a race - it is a family event! Participants and other attendees usually stay up to three hours after the Race to socialize and enjoy the food, music, and refreshments. In addition to honoring breast cancer survivors and remembering those who have lost their battle to the disease, we also host a jambalaya and chili cook-off that day. Teams throughout the Bayou Region cook up delicious food and the participants get to enjoy the results.
The Komen Race for the Cure Series raises significant funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer, celebrates breast cancer survivorship, and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease.
