It's not to late too join the Avera Race Against Breast Cancer

Posted: Updated:
The Avera Race Against Breast Cancer is coming up next week.

If you haven't signed up yet, it's not too late.

It's takes a lot of hard work and a lot of volunteers to make sure the race is a success.

KSFY News caught up with the organizers of the race.

Last year, nearly 7,000 people took part in the race.

They tell KSFY News they're on track with about 3,700 people signed up so far.

The 2014 Avera Race Against Breast Cancer is Saturday, May 10th.

Whether you're a walker or a runner you can join the race individually or register as a team.

Besides being a great day to be outside and get some exercise, the important part about the Avera Race Against Breast Cancer is that it raises awareness and dollars to help fight breast cancer.

Avera McKennan Giving Coordinator Missy Keiper said "we encourage people to still get registered. You can actually still get registered up to the day of the event, as well, if you want to get registered on race day, you can do that too. It's just $40 instead [of $30 online]. We're just encouraging people if you know you want to get involved. Get yourself registered because we actually have these t-shirts i'm actually wearing, this year are our dry-fit t-shirts that's a limited number, so we're encouraging people to get registered ."

"We have a lot of support from volunteers, staff members at the fitness center as well as from the hospital. We just have a lot of people that pitch in and they want to, they want to help with this event to make a difference because they know that a hundred percent of all proceeds goes back to the community," Keiper added.

The Avera Race Against Breast Cancer sports a 5K or 10K run.

And for those who prefer to walk,  you can take part in the 1.5 or three mile walk.
