The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series is the largest series of 5K runs/fitness walks in the world. Over the past 18 years, the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale community has raised millions of dollars to fund the fight against breast cancer through the Komen Race for the Cure. Over 100,000 people have participated in the 5K walk and run, One Mile Fun Walk and Tot Run since the first Miami/Ft. Lauderdale Komen Race for the Cure in 1995.
This unique event is designed and implemented to promote positive awareness, education and early detection of breast cancer. Up to 75 percent of the funds raised at the Race remain in Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe counties to provide breast health research, diagnostics, screening, treatment, services and education for uninsured or underinsured women. The remaining 25 percent goes to fund national research to discover the causes of breast cancer and, ultimately, its cures. Please visit our grants page to see who received this year's grants.
