Fremont Street Experience will host the 21st Annual Susan G. Komen Las Vegas Race for the Cure on Saturday, May 7 with registration starting at 6:00 a.m.
Individuals can participate in a 5K (approximately 3.2 miles) or a 1-Mile Fun Walk. The Race will start at the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and Clark Avenue at 8:15 a.m. and will finish at the intersection of Fremont East and 6th Street. After the event, Fremont Street Experience encourages all those brave and giving enough to fly on SlotZilla, with 100% of all revenue to benefit Susan G. Komen Nevada. For everyone that flies on SlotZilla from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the full ticket price will benefit the charity – $40 for the upper Zoomline and $20 for the lower Zipline. Flight times can be purchased at the SlotZilla box office or can be booked in advance online at www.vegasexperience.com.
“We are thrilled to be hosting the Susan G. Komen Las Vegas Race for the Cure once again in their 21st year,” said Thomas Bruny, Director of Marketing of Fremont Street Experience. “We will be welcoming thousands of walkers as they step out to support a meaningful cause. We encourage people to stay after the walk to fly on SlotZilla because every dollar of revenue from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. will go to this terrific charity that addresses breast cancer on so many levels.”
