About Race for the Cure

In order to protect our breast cancer community, the Race for the Cure will be going VIRTUAL for the first time. While the pandemic has cancelled many important moments in our lives, our mission to end breast cancer isn’t cancelled, and neither is our Race!

This important annual event raises significant funds for the breast cancer movement, thanks to supporters and survivors around the world who step up and take action by fundraising for the cause.

Fundraising efforts directly support:

  • Innovative breakthrough research, leveraging technology and Big Data to accelerate discoveries to find the cures and save lives.
  • Direct patient support, transforming the patient engagement and care experience, breaking down barriers through our national Helpline, a universally accessible Treatment Assistance Program and developing a Komen-certified, technology-driven Patient Navigation program.
  • Advocacy, harnessing the power of our grassroots supporters to ensure wide-ranging patient rights to life-saving cancer care and continued investment in transformational research.
