Road Closures: Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure

The annual run for breast cancer research is this Sunday.

Activity for the 20th annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure begins at 6 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 21. 

After 11 a.m., "you would never know it happened," according to an email distributed to members of the Hunt Valley Business Forum. 

For everyone else, Baltimore County police are cautioning drivers to seek alternate routes the Hunt Valley area Sunday. See the full list of road closures from Baltimore County police, below. 

The race will feature both competitive and non-competitive 5ks as well as a 1 mile family fun walk. 

Komen Maryland has raised $1,323,367 in donations as of 2 p.m. Thursday just from the Hunt Valley race alone, although The Sun reports that registration and donations are down from 2011. 

With that in mind, if you would still like to contribute to breast cancer research, without breaking a sweat, just break the check book and send a donation to: 

Komen Maryland Race for the Cure
PO Box 1333
Hagerstown, MD 21741-1333

Please consider making a donation directly to Planned Parenthood, an operation that actually provides hands on health care to women as opposed to this highly politicized group with excessive administrative costs for a nonprofit.

You are absolutely right!
Donald Spitz October 19, 2012 at 12:22 PM
People give Susan G. Komen money to fight breast cancer and Susan G. Komen gives some of that donated money to the babykillers at Planned Parenthood. I don't think people who give money to Susan G. Komen to fight breast cancer, know their money is going to an abortion organization that kills unborn babies.

Donald is right. It's better to cut out the middle man and donate directly to Planned Parenthood if that's what you choose. Or you could spend your money the way you want and not listen to the Donald Spitz's of the world. Why is he on the Hunt Valley Patch anyway?
