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. 100% of the net proceeds are allocated to the Susan G. Komen Missouri 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 and support services. The remaining 25 percent of the net income supports cutting-edge, global breast cancer research funded through 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. • Every minute, somewhere in the world, someone dies from breast cancer. • Breast cancer knows no boundaries - be it age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location. • At the current rate, 13 million breast cancer deaths around the world will occur in the next 25 years. • There are more than 3 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S. We continue to Race because it makes a difference. When you participate and fundraise for the Komen Greater St. Louis Race for the Cure, we fight these statistics together.
