EDINA, Minn — The Twin Cities Susan G. Komen race committee has made the difficult decision to move the 28th annual Race for the Cure from their normal in-person event to a virtual race, due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

The committee says the change will allow everyone to participate in a healthy and safe way while social distancing. 

"Instead of gathering together at Southdale Center on Mother's Day, we are asking supporters to participate remotely. You can run or walk on your own terms - in your own neighborhood or even on your own treadmill!," reads a release from the Komen Foundation.   

Race t-shirts and bibs will be mailed to participants. 

Funds raised from this virtual race will go to critical breast cancer programs in Minnesota. You can visit the Susan G. Komen site to see all the great organizations and initiatives that received funding last year. 

Registration for the virtual race is now open.
