Are patients, survivors and those living with metastatic breast cancer expected to fundraise?
Just like our other participants, we encourage every participant to fundraise and have an opportunity to earn fundraising recognition items for their efforts! We find that survivors, those living with metastatic breast cancer and others that have a deeply personal connection to the cause are the most powerful and passionate fundraisers.

Isn’t my registration fee a donation?
Registration fees provide you access to the event and help to offset the costs for things like security, permits, tents, and other operational items. This is why they are not tax-deductible donations. Your donations and fundraising help fund our work to save lives.

Does the money raised benefit people in our community?
Funds raised by the Komen Race for the Cure series supports Komen’s mission to save lives and end breast cancer through breakthrough research and ensuring all people receive the care they need.
