Komen Race for the Cure co-sponsored by Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center

The Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center at the School of Medicine and Barnes-Jewish Hospital is co-sponsoring the Komen St. Louis Race for the Cure June 14. And that means an array of benefits for University staff and students (and their families and friends) who register as members of the Siteman Race Team by noon May 27.

If you register as a Siteman Race Team member, you’ll receive lots of perks such as a Race Team T-shirt, the Komen race packet and a discounted $16 registration fee.

You will also automatically be registered for prizes, including two round-trip Delta Air Lines tickets; a one-year membership to the BJC WellAware Center; American Express, AMC Theatres and Applebee’s gift certificates; and a spa package.

The Komen race — a 5K run and 1-mile walk — raises funds for local and national breast cancer initiatives, with the majority of the money benefiting breast cancer education screening and treatment efforts in St. Louis.

Registration will be held at the Medical Campus the week of April 28 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at various locations. To register online, visit stlouisraceforthecure.org and select Siteman Cancer Center team option No. 721.
