Do I get a t-shirt?

All registered participants will receive an event t-shirt. The shirts for survivors and those living with metastatic breast cancer will be in special colors to recognize their role in our event.

Register early to receive your shirt before event day!

How will I get my t-shirt?

We are now mailing all shirts for all participants.

In order to receive your shirt in time for Race day, you must register by Sunday, August 27, 2023 at 11:59pm Central. Participants who register after Sunday, August 27, 2023 will receive your shirt(s) by mail after the event.

*Shirts are being mailed via USPS. As with any shipping provider, delays may occur.

Please note: there will be no on-event shirt pick-up or additional shirt pick-up opportunities for shirts of any kind.

Why are all t-shirts being mailed this year?

Mailing all shirts guarantees you will get the size you requested. Additionally, the new program will cut down on waste and will allow for cost savings, ensuring more of your fundraising dollars are directed to Komen’s lifesaving mission.

We're working on scheduling some fabulous activities now! Check back later for all the details.
