Where does the money go?

The Susan G. Komen for the Cure Race Series is the largest series of 5K runs/fitness walks in the world and raises significant funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer. Washington, D.C. has one of the highest breast cancer mortality rates in the country and local residents face severe disparities in accessing breast health and breast cancer screening and treatment services. Last year, $3.3 million of the funds raised through the Komen National Race remained in the Washington, D.C. community to fund outreach programs and initiatives that address the specific unmet breast health needs of the area. The remaining net proceeds support cutting-edge breast cancer research through the Komen Grants Program, which has invested more than $180 million dollars over the past 25 years, making it the largest source of funding for breast cancer research behind the U.S. government. These grants support groundbreaking breast cancer research, meritorious awards and educational and scientific programs around the world.

About Susan G. Komen for the Cure(R)

Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen for the Cure is the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure, we have invested $1 billion to fulfill our promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.
