Posted on Wednesday, May 1, 2013 at 10:28 am

How many have ever wanted to travel to beautiful downtown St. Louis for the Komen Race for the Cure? Well, the opportunity has presented itself as Margie Koch will be captaining the Elsberry Survivors Team at the 15th Annual Komen St. Louis Race for the Cure on June 15.

Other joining Koch for this years run is Donna Davis, Thelma Dameron and Denise Boaz.

The Race for the Cure has a one-mile fun walk, a 5K walk (or run for the more enthusiastic), and for those serious runners a 5K Timed Run. The registration is $30.00 (the timed run is $35.00) and includes an official race day T-shirt. Registration forms are available at Margie Koch’s Insurance Office located at 200 Broadway Street or call the office for more information and to get instructions on how to register online at 573-898-3161.

The deadline for paper registrations is May 19 and those registering on line will have until Midnight on May 28. Holiday Tours has once again been hired to take the team to the event.

“The bus will hold 55 passengers, so make your reservation today,” said Koch. “Not able to join us on race day or don’t want to wake up before daylight? Consider making a donation to the team, or join the ‘Sleep In for the Cure.’”
