The Race for the Cure is much more than a “race.” Since its inception seventeen years ago, our community has joined together to celebrate the survivors, honor those who have passed and continue to fight to find the cures.

Breast cancer often strikes without warning, affecting women and men of all ages and races. Many of us have personally been affected by it. That’s why annually, we come together to show that we are MORE THAN PINK. We are fighting for a world without breast cancer.

In addition to the 5K run and walk and 1 Mile Fun Walk, Race Day is a celebration for the whole family. It includes food & beverages, entertainment, education, and acknowledgement of those who have battled breast cancer. There are giveaways, promotions, and the Promise Shop where you can do your shopping for all things PINK. Our Grantees will be there, as will several of our Sponsors.

Thank you for your support – both past and present.
