INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - Race for the Cure comes to central Indiana Saturday, April 27, and you still have time to get involved.

More than 2,000 women in central Indiana are diagnosed with breast cancer every year and more than 400 will die from it. Studies have found Hoosier women are less likely to get screenings.

The central Indiana affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Foundation provides screenings, treatment and education services to thousands of women every year, investing more than $27 million in research at Indiana hospitals and universities.

Tabitha Arnett, the 2019 Race for the Cure Ambassador and a breast cancer survivor, and Carla Borden, Komen Central Indiana's executive director, joined us Sunday morning on Eyewitness News Sunrise to talk about how you can register and what the organization does for women in central Indiana.
