2017 Komen Greater St. Louis Race for the Cure® kicks off

The heat didn't stop 15-thousand people from hitting the streets of St. Louis this morning for the annual Komen Greater St. Louis Race for the Cure.

ST. LOUIS - GIVE STRENGTH TO THE LOCAL FIGHT AGAINST BREAST CANCER

The Susan G. Komen Greater St. Louis Race for the Cure® raises critical funds and awareness for the breast cancer movement, celebrates breast cancer survivors and forever fighters and honors those we have lost to the disease.

This Race is unique in the fact that 100% of the net proceeds are allocated to Susan G. Komen® Missouri’s mission of saving lives and ending breast cancer forever. Seventy-five percent of the net income stays in our community to help fund local programs offering breast cancer screening, breast health education and patient navigation and support services. The remaining 25 percent of the net income supports cutting-edge, global breast cancer research.

FUNDRAISING
The heart of this event is you, our participants—and we need your help to make the biggest impact possible against this disease. Your registration fee helps make a difference, but your additional fundraising helps us provide even more funding for local, life-saving breast cancer screening, breast health education and patient support services and breast cancer research.

If every Komen Greater St. Louis Race participant raised $100, the local fight against breast cancer could be $2.5 million stronger.

A TRIBUTE TO BREAST CANCER SURVIVORS
You’ll find an incredible community of survivors and co-survivors at the Susan G. Komen Greater St. Louis Race for the Cure®. Survivors and co-survivors gather to celebrate and support one another in an atmosphere of genuine camaraderie. It is their inspiring spirit that energizes our community to continue the fight to end breast cancer forever.

All breast cancer survivors (who choose to indicate as such at the time of registration) will receive a special pink Race bib as well as a pink Race T-shirt.

Breast cancer survivors who register for the Race are invited to bring one registered guest to the Survivor Pavilion to enjoy a complimentary breakfast and fellowship with other survivors.

Susan G. Komen Missouri is on a mission to save lives and end breast cancer forever. Your Komen Greater St. Louis Race registration, fundraising and donations give strength to the local fight against breast cancer! Join us on Saturday, June 10. www.komenmissouri.org
