Channel 13 Eyewitness News Anchors John Stehr will and Anne Marie Tiernon will serve as the emcees of this year's Race for the Cure Opening Ceremonies. Last year's attendance, of more than 27,000, raised $2 million for breast cancer research, treatment and education.
Of the net proceeds from the Indianapolis race, 75% will stay in Central Indiana to fund screenings and follow-up care for underserved women. The proceeds will also help provide education about breast health and early detection, as well as education and outreach programs. The remaining 25% helps fund the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Research Program.
