Through pre-registration, organizers are at 17% of that goal with close to $140,000.

 You can Register in-person the morning of the race from 7 am to 9 am at a new location of the south fountain on Lincoln Memorial Drive across the street from the O'Donnell parking garage.

Komen has played a critical role in every major advance in the fight against breast cancer - transforming how the world talks about and treats this disease and helping to turn millions of breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors.

This group says this progress was made with the continued community which the hope is will end one day with a world without breast cancer.

CBS 58 and Telemundo Wisconsin will be covering the event.

Be sure to stop by and say hi at the station tent where free pink sunglasses will be handed out while supplies last.
