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 we have lost to the disease.
This Race is unique in the fact that 100% of the net proceeds are allocated to our mission. 75 percent of the net income stays in our community to help fund local programs offering breast cancer screening, breast health education and patient navigation services. The remaining 25 percent of the net income supports cutting-edge breast cancer research funded through the Susan G. Komen® Grants Program, including research in St. Louis.
