What am I doing?
There are few of us in this country whose lives have not been touched by breast cancer. On March 12th, I will be walking in the Komen Southwest Florida Race for the Cure. It is an event that has changed the way the world views breast cancer. Men and women and families come together and walk side by side for one cause on Race day. I invite you to join forces with me to make a difference in the fight against 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.
Seventy-five percent of net proceeds generated by the Affiliate stays in the Southwest Florida area. The remaining income goes to the national Susan G. Komen for the Cure® Grants Program to fund research. Komen is a 4 star rated charity by charitynavigator.org. We are the largest source of non-profit funding for breast cancer research in the world. Since 2002, we have invested more than $3.7 million into our community and have also funded $1.2 million in research grants. We are able to do this with the help of the Komen Southwest Florida Race for the Cure, which raises significant funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer, celebrates breast cancer survivorship, and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease.
Over the next 25 years, an estimated 25 million women 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.
