Race for the Cure

The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is the world’s largest fundraising event for breast cancer.   It consists of a series of 5K runs and fitness walks to raise money for breast cancer, to raise awareness of the disease, to celebrate those who have survived breast cancer, and memorialize those who have not.  The first race was run in Dallas, Texas in 1983, with 800 participants.  The 25th Anniversary of the Race was celebrated in 2008. In 2009, it was renamed as Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.  In 2010, there were about 130 races worldwide.  Additionally in 2010, over 1.6 million people participated in the race, which utilized over 100,000 volunteers.  Since its inception in 1982, Komen has spent (through 2010) nearly $1.5 billion for breast cancer education, research, advocacy, health services and social support programs in the U.S., and through partnerships in more than 50 countries.  Today, Komen has more than 100,000 volunteers working in a network of 124 affiliates worldwide.
