Coming up: The annual Race for the Cure and more

Friday through Sunday, May 30 – June 1, there’s plenty in the way of action and performances to take in – Mariner baseball, Sounders Soccer, The Pacific Northwest Ballet, the Lionel Richie and CeeLo Green concert, and James Taylor and his All Star Band. In addition to all those events, Sunday morning 10,500 participants will take part in the one mile and 5K Susan G. Komen Puget Sound Race for the Cure.
