PORTSMOUTH - For the last three years, the Susan G. Komen Race for a Cure in New Hampshire has had a strong run as one of the largest events to bring awareness to survivors and those suffering from breast cancer. With the race returning for a fourth year, there’s no end in sight for its continued success.

The Vermont-New Hampshire Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen organization will hold its fourth annual race on May 9th at the Strawberry Banke Museum on 14 Hancock Street in Portsmouth, N.H. at 9 a.m. To date, the Komen organization’s national race days have become some of the largest and most successful fundraising events for breast cancer around the world.

Seacoast Spine will provide medical services in the First-Aid tent for runners along with massages for breast cancer survivors. There will also be a silent auction featuring local business, like Art with a Splash and Coastal Fitness, donating their goods and/or services to the event.
