Event Overview:

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 who have lost their battle with 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 health education and breast cancer screening and treatment. The remaining 25 percent of the net income supports the Susan G. Komen® Grants Program.

We Race Because…
One in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
Because every minute, somewhere in the world, someone dies from breast cancer.
And because, breast cancer knows no boundaries- be it age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location.
We continue to Race because at the current rate, 13 million breast cancer deaths around the world will occur in the next 25 years.

But, when you participate and fundraise for the Race, we fight these statistics together. In 1980, the 5-year relative survival rate for women diagnosed with early stage breast cancer (cancer confined to the breast) was about 74 percent. Today, that number is 99 percent! Komen has played a critical role in every major advance in the fight against breast cancer - transforming how the world talks about and treats this disease and helping to turn millions of breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors. This progress was made with your continued support and together we can reach our vision of a world without breast cancer.

About Susan G. Komen Greater Kansas City:

In 2013, Susan G. Komen® Greater Kansas City turned 20!  A lot has happened in the last two decades.  After our first Race for the Cure® in Corporate Woods in July of 1994, Komen KC presented its first grants in February 1995. $42,000 was given to Truman Medical Center and $42,000 was given to The University of Kansas Hospital. In 2015 our grants reached more than $430,000. That means even more help for medically vulnerable women, men and their families in our 17-county service area.  During these challenging times, that has a real impact.

This remarkable growth would not be possible without you!

Since our inception, Komen Kansas City has invested more than $15.4 million in local community breast health programs and education as well as more than $3.7 Million to the most promising breast cancer research programs. During this time more than $8.6 Million in research grants have come back to our service area, including grants to Dr. Carol Fabian and Dr. Danny Welch both at the University of Kansas Cancer Center.
