Susan G. Komen appreciation dinner

WAUSAU (WAOW) - Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is almost here.

The appreciation reception was held Tuesday night to say thank you to those who join the fight against breast cancer.

Grant recipients, volunteers and sponsors gathered for the dinner at the Jefferson Street Inn in Wausau.

The race is in its 5th year in central Wisconsin.

Race organizers say they are ahead of last year both in terms of money raised and in race registration.

"The money we raise, up to 75 percent of it will stay right here in the central Wisconsin area. It goes right back into our fiscal year, into grants, to the programs, some of which we already fund. The other 25 percent goes straight into national research grants." said race co-chair Susan Ford-Hoffert.

Newsline 9 is a proud sponsor of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.

You can join team Nate or Team Justin until midnight Tuesday and be part of the race.

The race will be held Sunday.
