Race Day at KS95 … Changing It Up!
We’re changing it up a bit this year for those coming to KS95 on Race morning to take the free bus transportation on Sunday, May 8th, time 6:30am: WEAR YOUR TEAM T-SHIRTS! Gather at KS95 with Moon, Staci & Crisco on Sunday, May 8th, where we will then transport all of our Team members to the Race via fabulous coach buses courtesy of Voigt’s Motorcoach Travel. You can come already dressed and ready to walk with the Team. Click here for a map on where to park and go on Race morning at KS95. The Race route will take participants on a 5K trek around beautiful Lake Cornelia in Edina.
Changes: Note for this year, we will no longer be in the big KS95 garage, but we will be working out of the same area that you pick up your Race materials – see above noted map. There will be opportunities to take a selfie with Moon, Staci & Crisco, grab a breakfast item/beverage and an opportunity to register for some prizes as well. Instead of loading up everyone at one time, we will load the buses as people arrive, so the buses can depart as they fill up and get to the race.
There will be one bus designated to survivors and their families that will depart last Moon, Staci & Crisco at 7:15am.
Team Photo 8am at the Race for the Cure!
Since there are quite a few Team members that do not take the free bus transportation, we would like to encourage everyone on our Team to gather at the Race for the Cure by the Voigt’s coach buses (team drop off location) at 8am, 6800 Building Parking Lot off of France Avenue directly across from the Health Expo. We’ll take a quick Team photo and you can be off again. Click here for the location that is circled in red.
How Do We Get Back from the Race to KS95?
We will have buses departing for the Race for the Cure between 6:45-7:15am from KS95. Buses will depart from Southdale Center to KS95 at 11am.
No, Can’t Take Advantage of Free Bus Transportation!
If you’re unable to join us on Race Day at KS95, just make sure you pick up your Race materials from KS95 Thursday, May 5th & Friday, May 6th, between the hours of 8am-6pm.

- Women treated with radiation therapy to the chest area for Hodgkin’s disease at a young age have an increased risk of breast cancer. Although radiation therapy increases the risk of breast cancer later in life, its benefits for the treatment of Hodgkin’s disease (or other cancers) far outweigh this risk.
