We Race Because…
- 1 in 7 women in Colorado will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
- 11 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each day in Colorado.
- Breast cancer knows no boundaries- be it age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location.
- When detected at an advanced stage, the 5-year survivorship rate for a breast cancer diagnosis is 26% — compared to 99% when diagnosed early.
When you participate and fundraise for Race, we fight these statistics together. Komen has played a critical role in every major advance in the fight against breast cancer – transforming how the world talks about and treats this disease and helping to turn millions of breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors. This progress was made with your continued support and together we can reach our vision of a world without breast cancer.
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.
Registration opens at 6 am
