A race for the cure is in South Florida this weekend. Where thousands of breast cancer survivors, supporters and people who have been affected will be participating. Read more below about the race and how to join in to support the cure for breast cancer.

Thousands will join together to walk, race, or stand proud in the crowd to celebrate breast cancer survivors or remember those who have been lost. The Race for the Cure is symbolic of Komen South Florida’s role in the community, ensuring that no woman—or man—ever walks alone on their? breast cancer journey. As South Florida’s “First Responders to Breast Cancer,” the organization provides immediate assistance, comfort and assurance, and a compassionate hand-off to a Komen-funded organization that can provide support when the need is most urgent.
Runners, walkers, corporate, community and school teams, and individuals of all ages are welcome to join the celebration that is full of activities for the entire family. Funds raised will support Susan G. Komen’s Bold Goal to reduce the nation’s 40,000 breast cancer deaths by 50% by 2026. Seventy-five percent of net proceeds remain local to provide breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment in Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River Counties and 25% is dedicated to research to find a cure.
