The 2017 Komen Las Vegas Race for a Cure event has been in the planning stages for quite a while, however you are now going to be able to register to take part in that event and also will be able to start your fund raising efforts right now for this excellent cause.

The event is taking place on Saturday, May 6, 2017 and the location is at the Fremont Street Experience in Downtown Las Vegas, Nevada 89101 and everyone is invited to take part in the annual quest to raise much needed funds for a cure for breast cancer, that evil disease that has affected and continues to affect women all over the world.

This year’s event is aiming to raise at least $200,000 and for more information we would encourage you to visit the Komen Nevada website.

You may be blissfully unaware that breast cancer is the one most common cancer in women, however it is a cancer that if spotted and diagnosed early can be treated, and those women who have been diagnosed early have by far and away the very best chances of survival.

However, the signs of early breast cancer are not always the same for every woman, and it is with that in mind that all women no matter what their age are best advised to get to know how their breasts look and normally feel and the very minute they notice any change they should seek the advice of their own medical care provider.

A full day of events are planned for the 2017 Komen Las Vegas Race for a Cure event and if you are in Vegas that day then we would encourage you to make plans to visit it, and make sure you have your pockets filled with cash and instead of spending it gambling make a hefty donation to the cause!

It doesn’t matter how much or how little you donate every single penny will help, and if you fancy taking part in the event then as mentioned above please do visit the 2017 Komen Las Vegas Race for a Cure website for more details.

It really is a sad fact of life that a lot of people will know a woman or several women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, and sadly some of those women may no longer be with us, and if you would like to make a small or large donation you can do so without needing to be in Vegas as donation can be accepted on their website.

Also be aware that from October 22, 2017 to October 26, 2017 the Pink CruiseAid2 will be setting sail and that is a Carnival Cruise from Long Beach, CA to Catalina Island and Ensenada, Mexico.

Anyone one who does book that cruise will be pleased to hear that $25 per person will be donated to Komen Nevada, and the prices for that cruise start at just $223 per person and you will find more details of it and how to book your place at or by calling 702.816.3413.
