Former models to participate in Runway for a Cure

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Some familiar faces will hit the runway at this year's Runway to Cure on Thursday, May 26, at St. Bernards Auditorium, 505 E. Washington Ave. in Jonesboro.

About two dozen women, all breast cancer survivors, will model two outfits each at the 10th anniversary of the style show.

In addition to the fashion show, this year's event will feature an intermission video of the "20 things you should say to breast cancer patients" with tips from those who make up a patient's support system, including doctors, family members and friends.

Tickets for the show are $25 each or $160 for a table of eight.

Proceeds benefit Arkansas Komen for a Cure. The Arkansas Komen affiliate annually awards funds to St. Bernards to help pay for breast health education, mammograms and other breast services for women in Northeast Arkansas.
