SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – The 2019 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure returns to Shreveport-Bossier Saturday, October 12th. It’s the 25th anniversary of the Northwest Louisiana race and, this year, Morning Anchor Karen Edwards will serve as one of the emcees for the fundraising event that raises money for breast cancer research and support.
