Local Celebrities Stand Together to Race for Cures

The Annual Komen Columbus Race for the Cure is unique and special for many different reasons. One of those reasons we want to highlight is the support we receive from local media to help share our mission and share the stories of the women and men we’ve helped over the last 25 years.

We are honored to have several familiar faces and voices in central Ohio participating in the 2017 Komen Columbus Race for the Cure on May 20.

Breast cancer survivors, Robyn Haines from NBC4 and Maria Durant from ABC6/FOX28 will kick-off  the day at the Survivor Ceremony. The two will be celebrating all survivors in attendance and get the crowd ready for the race! The Survivor Ceremony begins at 8 a.m. in the west plaza of City Hall.

For the first time in five years, our dear friend and Komen supporter, Andrea Cambern is coming home! Andrea will be joined by 10TV’s Commit to be Fit Jeff Hogan and the lovely Nia Noelle from Magic 95.5 FM. Andrea, Jeff and Nia will be at the start stage, located at the corner of Front and Elm Streets. In honor of Armed Forces day, the one and only Leo Welsh  will sing the National Anthem. The Race begins at 8:45 a.m.

For all the survivors who cross the finish line, you’ll find the dynamic NBC4 morning team of Monica Day and Matt Barnes handing out high-fives and hugs. Survivors will receive their survivor medals and pink rose at the finish line.

“The Annual Komen Columbus Race for the Cure is a day we take a unified stand against breast cancer and show our support and love to those affected by this disease,” said Nicolle Racey, director of communications and marketing at Komen Columbus, “To have TV, radio and print publications in town come together and share our vision for a world without breast cancer is truly powerful and it demonstrates that our community is in this together.”

Please join us downtown on Saturday, May 20 and Race for the Cure.
