Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series is the world’s largest and most successful education and fundraising event for breast cancer ever created.
The event raises significant funds and awareness for the breast cancer movement, celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease.
This Race is unique in the fact that 100% of the net proceeds are allocated to our mission. up to75% of the net income stays in our community to help fund local programs offering breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment. The remaining 25% of the net income supports the Susan G. Komen® Grants Program.
This year marks the 12th annual Race for the Cure in Southwest Florida,
we have seen it grow from a few hundred people to over thousands, it is a day
to remember those we've lost and those who are still fighting.
We race to change the future and support Komen's Bold Goal to reduce the number of breast cancer deaths by 50% in the U.S. within the next decade.
