The 2012 Komen Tyler Race for the Cure is set for Saturday, May 12th at Bergfeld Park in Tyler. Registration is going on now! Just visit and fill out your entry on-line! Komen Tyler Executive Director, Jennifer Watkins, stopped by the radio station yesterday and asked us to help get the word out about some other events surrounding Race for the Cure.

The first event is Monday, May 7th at El Charro #2 on the loop in Tyler. It’s an event called ‘Dine Out for the Cure.” Come and enjoy an evening of great food and be waited on by the “celebrity” wait staff! All the proceeds from tips benefit the Komen Tyler Race for the Cure!

Then, on May 9th, 10th and 11th, is the final push for race registrations. You can stop by the Rice Road Brookshire’s anytime between 10am and 7pm to register in person!

May 12th is race day and a different type of ‘Dine Out for the Cure’ event will be taking place. This one is taking place at restaurants all over Tyler. Stop by and eat that day and a portion of the proceeds will benefit Komen Tyler! The participating restaurants include:

  • Smashburger – both Tyler locations
  • Jersey Mike’s – both Tyler locations
  • TCBY Frozen Yogurt
  • Oliveto Italian Bistro
  • The Diner
  • McAlister’s Deli
  • Julians
  • Jucy’s Hamburgers
  • The Potpourri House
  • Tyler Ranch
  • Newk’s Express Cafe’

This is a great way to help support the fight against breast cancer – even if you’re not in to participating in the race itself!
