**Updated Raceday info is below!
Signups for our team have ended.
But you can still sign up to walk as an individual at KomenStLouis.org.
The 10th annual 2008 Susan G. Komen St. Louis Race for the Cure® is coming Saturday, June 21st in Downtown St. Louis! And once again Team Breadhead is back to raise awareness and help stomp out Breast Cancer. Last year’s St. Louis race was our biggest ever! 66,762 participants helped raise over $2.6 Million dollars for Breast Cancer research and prevention, much of it being utilized right back here in our area.
Once again, in 2008 Team Breadhead will be the biggest team in the St. Louis Komen Race For The Cure! And you helped us raise over $113,000 to fight breast cancer. To everyone who signed up this year, thank you! We look forward to walking with you June 21st!
CONGRATS TO KATHY SYLVESTER and ANNA BATHON who were the top fundraisers to Team Breadhead 2008 and won front row tickets to see Tim McGraw and Rascal Flatts.

TEAM BREADHEAD RACE DAY INFORMATION
The St. Louis Komen Race For The Cure is more than just a race. Many people arrive downtown early to take in all the activities and just absorb the inspirational spirit of the morning. We especially invite you to see the Survivors Procession at 7:25! Meanwhile, our team members have just a few important appointments we ask you to make that morning.
7:30-8am: Team Breadhead meets in Memorial Park near 13th & Olive. Last minute Team Breadhead shirt pickups will be available here.

PARKING: We invite you to utilize any of the S&H Parking lots around downtown. Please remember that not all lots will be open due to road closures near the race route, especially as the morning progresses.
METROLINK: The easiest way to avoid traffic is to take MetroLink. For our team, get off at the Scottrade/Civic Center stop, turn left and take 14th Street north about 6 blocks until you come to Memorial park on your right at Olive Street. We’ll be over a block at 13th & Olive.
