The deadline for online registration is Friday, Sept. 28, at noon but you can register via mail or in person until the day of the event. View the Komen Houston Frequently Asked Questions http://komen-houston.org/race/komen-houston-race-for-the-cure-faqs/  for more details.
 
Fundraising isn’t required, but all participants will have to pay their own registration fees. Fees range from $20 to $50, depending on the type of registration you choose. In accordance with our Charitable Activities and Solicitations Committee guidelines, you can raise money for the event but only on your personal time without using MD Anderson resources.
Register Today
 and follow these steps:
1.       Click “Join Team” (located on the left inside the MD Anderson box). Remember that you’re not required to make a donation so you don’t have to complete that field.
2.       After you click “Join Team,” you’ll be asked to “Choose Your Participation Type.”
3.       Near the end of that page, you’ll see a question about an individual fundraising goal with a preset amount. MD Anderson employees are not required to raise money for this event. You can ignore this question, go to the bottom of the page and keep clicking on “Next Step” until your registration is complete.
 
Online registration is preferred by the Komen Houston event organizers, but you can also register via mail or in person for an additional $5. View the Komen Houston Frequently Asked Questions http://komen-houston.org/race/komen-houston-race-for-the-cure-faqs/ for more details.
