October is International Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The month was established 25 years ago to promote awareness and ultimately actions. The local affiliate of the Komen for the Cure organization has been rapidly expanding to meet the needs of not only Boise, but now the whole state of Idaho and Montana. In addition to the popular Boise race fundraiser in May, races for Coeur D’Alene, Helena, and Pocotello have also been added. Below are some informative links:
