What am I doing?
I'm running my first timed run to support the Southwest Florida Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure because I want to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. Please help me reach my fundraising goal by making a tax-deductible donation today.
You may donate online with your credit card by clicking the DONATE button above the thermometer. Your support helps us get another step closer to a world without breast cancer.
What does Komen do?
For more than 25 years, Komen for the Cure 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.
Over the next 25 years, an estimated 25 million women and men around the world will be diagnosed with breast cancer if we don't find a cure. Komen will not stop until we discover and deliver the cures. That's our promise.
75% of the net funds raised stays in Southwest Florida and is used for screening, treatment and education programs. In 2011 Komen SWFL put over $ 1 Million Dollars into our local community.
25% of the net funds raised is used for cutting edge research grants. Komen is the largest source of non-governmental breast cancer research funding in the world.
