  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 11 people are interested

The Race for the Cure is Komen’s signature fundraising event. It’s a day where we can put aside everything else in our lives and share our stories, our laughter, and our tears to raise money that saves lives while we celebrate survivors, those living with breast cancer, and honor loved ones lost.

Imagine the impact we can make towards ending breast cancer when we come together as ONE to fund research, increase access to care, support our community, and commit to action.

Together, ONE more action by each of us can support Komen's comprehensive 360-degree approach to fighting this disease across all fronts and supporting millions of people in the U.S. and in countries worldwide. Advocating for patients, driving research breakthroughs, improving access to high-quality care, offering direct patient support and empowering people with trustworthy information.

We depend on our volunteers to make the Race for a Cure a success. We invite you to join us. There are multiple levels of volunteers and different roles divided into shifts. To sign up for a specific shift click here:
