Preparations underway for Avera Race next weekend

Posted: Updated:

With the Avera Race Against Breast Cancer a little more than a week away, there's a lot to get done before next Saturday.

Thursday, volunteers put together race kits for those who will be participating in the race. The kits include shirts as well as race information. Teams can start picking up their kits Thursday night and Friday. Individual racers can pick up their kits beginning next Friday. For the volunteers, they say they enjoy being a part of something that brings so many people together.

"It really is very nice to see all the help that comes out every year, see new faces, we see old faces, I think I've been doing this for maybe eight, 10 years," said Jim Baker.

"It's really an exciting event to volunteer for. It's fulfilling and we know we've done something for the community," said Sharron Castle.
