Since its origination in Dallas in 1983, it has grown from one local race with 800 participants to an international series of 116 races. Up to seventy-five percent of the net funds raised from this Race will remain in Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays Travis and Williamson counties to fund local breast cancer projects. The remaining twenty-five percent will go to The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation Award and Research Grant Program. In 2003, more than 15,000 Austin participants and local businesses helped raise over $500,000 for the fight against breast cancer.
