Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series
Victory in Every Step
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.
Susan G. Komen Northeast Ohio’s first Race for the Cure was held in 1994, and since then the Affiliate has raised more than $15 million dollars. These funds have gone on to help tens of thousands Northeast Ohio families.
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.
The Northeast Ohio Race for the Cure series is unique in the fact that 100% of the net proceeds are allocated to our mission. Seventy-Five percent 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 percent of the net income supports the Susan G. Komen® Scientific Research and Awards. This is why we race – what will you Race for?
