Avera race against cancer goes virtual

SIOUX FALLS, S.D.(Press Release) – The Avera Race Against Cancer will again be a virtual event, allowing people to make a difference in the lives of cancer patients, survivors and families – no matter where they live.

The Avera Race Against Cancer has supported cancer patients for more than three decades by raising more than $8 million to enhance programs and services at the Avera Cancer Institute. All proceeds benefit local patients. In fact, in Aberdeen, proceeds from the race will be used to launch a new wig program for area cancer patients.

Participants can walk, run, or join as a Sideline Supporter to further this cause. All who register will receive a Sport-Tek, long-sleeve Avera Race shirt. The race is set for Saturday, May 8. To register as an individual or to form a team, please visit AveraRace.org.

Over the next several weeks, the Avera Race Mustang will be appearing across the Avera region. The Mustang will be in Aberdeen this week! Anyone who spots the Avera Race Mustang, should snap a photo and post it to Facebook with the hashtag “#RunThisTown” to be entered to win free race registration for their entire immediate family.
