Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure


Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure

I have had the opportunity to do some work for the Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure for the last several years. It is nice to see the community come together and raise money for such an important cause. The funding not only goes to research; it also provides assistance to families, medical clinics and care programs while bringing awareness to the fight against breast cancer.

According to FOX19, up to 75 percent of net proceeds from Komen Race for the Cure will remain in the Cincinnati community to fund breast health community outreach programs.

The remainder of the net proceeds, a minimum of 25 percent, will support the national Susan G. Komen for the Cure® Award and Research Grant Program, which funds groundbreaking breast cancer research.

Cincinnati is fortunate to have a chapter rooted here, and to have so many volunteers, participants and survivors involved.
