The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is almost here but participation numbers are lower than last year.

As of February 5th, enrollment numbers are down 36 % compared to last year's race.

This could result in a $100,000 loss to the men and women of the El Paso community.

There's still time to register.

Walk-up registration will take place at Sunland Park Mall Saturday, February 9 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.

You can also register on Sunday at Academy Sports and Outdoors in the Lower Valley from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. as well.

The race is Sunday, February 17th at Cohen Stadium.

I know that this is for a good cause but I for one will not participate in this race and I have not for the past 3 years. My reason is that to me the Komen Foundation acts like a BIG BULLY towards other efforts to support or raise funds for breast cancer research, patients, survivors etc. Instead of encouraging they discourage because they want to be the main one. That to me is disgracefull.
