The Triangle Race for the Cure will celebrate its 20th year raising money for Komen North Carolina Triangle to the Coast.

The big event, which features a 5K and a lot of family fun, is June 11 at a new location this year. It's moving to The Frontier in Research Triangle Park where there will be plenty of fun for families to do during and after the race. They include a kids dash, one-mile run and recreational 5K. There also will be a Belk Tailgate Zone, a dozen food trucks and a Carolina Hurricanes Family Fun Zone with a bounce house and slap shot game, among other activities.

The competitive 5K will begin at 7:30 a.m. that morning. The Survivor Celebration is at 8:15 a.m. The recreational 5K and one-mile fun run is at 9 a.m.

The event raises funds and awareness for breast health programs, celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease. All of the net proceeds are allocated to the group's mission - 75 percent stays in the community community to help fund local programs offering breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment and 25 percent supports the Susan G. Komen Research Grants Program.
