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.
This Race is unique in the fact that 100% of the net proceeds are allocated to our 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.
About Susan G. Komen Missouri:
Susan G. Komen® Missouri was established in November 2015. The organization was formed by the consolidation of Susan G. Komen St. Louis and Susan G. Komen Mid-Missouri, plus the addition of five Missouri and Illinois counties not previously served by Komen.
Susan G. Komen Missouri is an independent, local nonprofit organization dedicated to fighting breast cancer and to meeting the breast health needs of the women, men and families most at risk and most in need in the organization's 38-county Missouri/Illinois service area.
