Race for the Cure® Event Day Schedule
9:00 AM | Virtual Opening Ceremony
On Race Day, join us online via Facebook Live HERE or via Zoom HERE for a moving and interactive virtual opening ceremony. The opening ceremony will feature survivor testimonials, sponsor highlights, and a dynamic Q&A session between Komen researchers, patient navigators, breast cancer thrivers, and advocates moderated by Komen CEO, Paula Schneider.
All Day | Race Where You Are
After the opening ceremony, we encourage you to race/walk in your neighborhood, local park, or wherever you are able to safely gather with your family, friends, and team members. View our Independent Race Route Map for race/walk route options throughout Greater New York City, including our historic Central Park route! While you race/walk, tune into your preferred podcast streaming platform to listen to the ONE Audio Experience and hear personal stories from those touched by breast cancer. We also invite you to participate in a variety of fun and interactive activities using Greater NYC’s ONE Community Experience Checklist. Share why you race/walk with those around you using our Why I Race Poster and Dedication Back Signs.
Throughout Race Day, help the ONE Komen community create a one-of-a-kind Photo Mosaic by uploading your photos to social media using the hashtags #ONEKomen and #racefortheCURE. Finish your incredible Race Day by snapping a photo of yourself, or with loved ones, using our Finish Line Moment photo technology! Stay tuned within the Greater NYC Facebook Group for more information.
On Sunday, September 12, 2021, we will race for the people who can't: For those too weakened by treatment to join. For those who are suffering. For those we have lost. Together we will fight back against breast cancer.
