IRVING, Texas, April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Cash Store, a Texas based consumer financial services provider, announced today that it is sponsoring the 2013 NCR Sprint for Cancer Dallas/Fort Worth Race, which raises funds for Young Texans Against Cancer.

The fun walk/run begins at 8 a.m. followed by the 5K & 10K at 8:30 a.m.
