This Friday, October 13 is 'Pink Out Texarkana'. All businesses, schools, organizations, and citizens of Texarkana and the surrounding area are encouraged to wear pink during 'Pink Out Texarkana' to show support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Komen Texarkana Race for the Cure.

Please call the Race office at 903-791-9585 to let them know of any special events planned for that day, or contact the Race office if you need help planning your Pink Out event.

The Susan G. Komen organizations main focus is to end breast cancer. Do you know that 80 percent of all money raised is going directly to the cause? Did you know that there has been a 38 percent decrease in breast cancer mortality from 1989-2014?
