Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series is the world’s largest and most successful education and fundraising event for breast cancer ever created.
The event raises significant funds and awareness for the breast cancer movement, celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease.
This Race is unique in the fact that 100% of the net proceeds are allocated to our mission. 75 percent of the net income stays in our community to help fund local programs offering breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment. The remaining 25 percent of the net income supports the Susan G. Komen® Grants Program.
The Lowcountry affiliate of Susan G. Komen is the local resource for those in need of breast cancer screening, diagnostic and treatment support services, and breast health education. Komen Lowcountry has invested more than $6.8 million in local breast health and breast cancer programs in our 17 county service area. More than $2.5 million has been invested by the affiliate in breast cancer research, saving lives not only in our community but also globally.
