Fundraising FAQs

Q: Does the Komen Race for the Cure® require fundraising?
You are not required to fundraise, but we do encourage all participants to fundraise above the entry fee. Just Imagine the IMPACT – If every Race participant raises just $10 in addition to their registration fee, we would bring in an additional $100,000 to support local screening, treatment and educational programs in our community!

Q: Does the money raised stay right here in our community?
Yes! Up to seventy-five percent of the net income from the Race stays right here in our community to fund vital breast cancer health education and breast cancer screening and treatment programs.  The remaining twenty-five percent supports the Komen for the Cure Award and Research Grants Programs, which funds groundbreaking breast cancer research.
