LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- To show its support of the Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure and breast cancer research, TARC will allow anyone wearing pink on Saturday, October 13 to ride public transportation for free throughout Louisville.
The Transit Authority of River City will allow riders on for free if they're decked out in pink, to show support for that day's Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and breast-cancer research.
TARC would like to do what it can to support the Race For The Cure and help make it a successful event," said J. Barry Barker, Executive Director of TARC. "To that end, we're going to offer participants – and anyone wearing pink – a safe, convenient way to get there for free."
The deal also applies to anyone taking part in the race. The 17th annual Race for the Cure includes a 5K and a 10K and a 1-mile family walk. It starts at 9 a.m. EDT on Saturday at Iroquois Park.
Runners and walkers can carpool to parking sites north of the park or take 1 of 2 TARC routes that provide direct service to the park. For more information, visit http://www.komenlouisville.org or http://www.ridetarc.org.
