Q. Does the Komen Race for the Cure® require fundraising?
A. You are not required to fundraise. However, we do encourage all participants to fundraise above the registration fee. Just Imagine the IMPACT - If every Race participant raises just $100 in addition to their registration fee, we would bring in an additional $200,000 to support screening, treatment and educational programs in our community! Think about the difference that would make!
Q. Does the money raised stay right here in our community?
A. Yes! Seventy-five percent of the net income from the Race stays right here in our community to fund vital breast cancer health education and breast cancer screening and treatment programs. The remaining twenty-five percent supports Komen’s national research and training grants program.
