Susan G. Komen Northwest NC Race for the Cure
Join us for the 2015 Susan G. Komen Northwest NC Race for the Cure on September 26.
The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure
® Series, the largest series of 5K runs/fitness walks in the world, raises significant funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer, celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease. Since its inception in 1983, the Komen Race for the Cure series has grown from one local Race with 800 participants to a global series of more than 120 Races with more than 1 million participants.
The Komen Race for the Cure is a unique event, designed and implemented to promote positive awareness, education and early detection of breast cancer.
Up to 75 percent of the funds raised at the triad Race remain here in North Carolina to provide breast health research, diagnostics, screening, treatment, services and education for uninsured or underinsured women. The remaining 25 percent goes to fund national research to discover the causes of breast cancer and, ultimately, its cures.
