If you missed the window to register online for the Susan G. Komen Boise Race for the Cure, that’s totally fine.

An in-person registration option is available during packet pickup or even on race day.

The 20th annual fundraiser is Saturday, May 12, at Albertsons Headquarters, 250 E. ParkCenter Blvd., Boise.

Registration tent opens at 7 a.m. with the 5k and 1 mile course starting at 9 a.m.

Additional activities include an expo area — also opening at 7 a.m. — with sponsor booths to visit at your leisure, and an Axiom Zumba warm-up prior to the race at 8 a.m.

Up to 75 percent of the net income from the event stays in our community to fund breast cancer health education, screening and treatment programs. The remaining 25 percent supports Komen’s national research and training grants program.

Late registration is $35 general and $30 for youth participants ages 17 and younger.

Download the offline registration form at komenidahomontana.org and take it to one of the packet pickup dates at the Boise Outlet Mall, 6806 S. Eisenman Road or bring it to the registration tent on event day.

More information available at komenidahomontana.org.
