Update: 1,400 participants and almost 300 volunteers helped out at the Race for the Cure.

Race coordinator Jennifer Smith says 75 percent of the proceeds from the race stay in Wausau while 25 percent go back to the national organization to fund research.

Quinten and Trent Eberhardy or Kronenwetter raced in honor of their two aunts, both of whom are survivors.

"It was really exciting but a little challenging," says Trent.

The 3rd Annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in downtown Wausau will hold registration beginning Thursday at the Wausau Center Mall. The registration booths will be located near JCPenney.

The race is Sunday, August 12 starting on the 400 Block in Wausau. The start time for the 5K Race/Walk is 9 a.m. The 1K Family Walk begins at 9:15 a.m.

Registration at the mall will be open from 4 p.m. To 8 p.m. On Thursday and Friday, and 10 a.m. To 5 p.m. on Saturday. Participants can also register the day of the race from 7 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.

Organizers hope to raise $400,000. In 2011, more than $230,000 were raised.
