Join the Monona Public Library Race for the Cure Team - Now

From Toni Streckert at the Monona Public Library:

Lace up your walking shoes and help fight breast cancer!

Join the Monona Public Library Race for the Cure Team for a 1-mile walk or a 5-kilometer (3.1 mile) walk or run.

Two ways to register:

1. Paper registration and payment by check.

* To register with a paper form, fill out the form enclosed in your pink packet – or ask for a form at the front counter.

* Fill it out – and make sure to sign it.

* Make your check payable to “Komen Madison Race for the Cure.”

Fees are $25 for the walk or run, with an extra $5 for the optional chip-timing for competitive runners who want to be eligible for prizes. Children ages 6-12 are $10 and there is no fee for younger children.

* Forms should be dropped off at the Monona Public Library by Friday, May 21.

2. Online registration and payment by credit card.

* To register online, go to www.komenmadison.org and go to the “Register” link.

* Go to the “Join an existing team” link (you can search by team name, which is Monona Public Library).

* All online registrants must pay by credit card.

* Online registration for our team ends at midnight Friday, May 21.

For both registration methods, your race number and T-shirt will be delivered to the library and we will contact you when you can pick it up on the week of the race.


You may walk or run on your own or with the Monona Public Library team. We will announce a meeting time and place.

  1. Doug- If folks have kiddos, and they are not doing Race for the Cure, on June 5th they should definitely be at the Sawyer Crossen Memorial Kids Triathlon- a new and wonderful annual event for kids 4-17 in Monona. There was a great story in the Herald last week-

    This is going to become a wonderful family event each year- people should go to the rec dept website to sign up kids, sign up to volunteer, or donate money! A great Monona family and a great cause.

    And you should put it at the top of your blog.... :)
