Susan G. Komen Twin Cities Race for the Cure

The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure®, the largest series of 5K runs/fitness walks in the world, raises significant funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer, celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease. Since its inception in 1983, the Komen Race for the Cure series has grown from one local Race with 800 participants to a global series of more than 150 events with more than 1.6 million people expected to participate in 2013. The first Komen Twin Cities Race for the Cure® was held in 1993, with 2,500 participants attending. In recent years, nearly 50,000 participants have shared in the enthusiasm of the Race on Mother's Day.

The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® is a unique event, designed and implemented to promote positive awareness, education and early detection of breast cancer.  It has proved to be an enormously effective way to reach many women and men with the message that breast cancer is not necessarily fatal if mammography and breast self-exam become routine. As well as being a road race for runners, the Komen Race for the Cure is an emotionally charged event that attracts many first timers and recreational runners. The Komen Race for the Cure is an opportunity for thousands of women, men and their families, running or walking, to spread the breast cancer message within their communities.
