Join the Local Fight Against Breast Cancer at the 2016 Susan G. Komen Mid-Missouri Race for the Cure® on October 9
Funds Raised Through the Komen Mid-Missouri Race Benefit Local Breast Health Programs and Global Breast Cancer Research
COLUMBIA – July 20, 2016 – Give strength to the local fight against breast cancer by participating in or donating to the 2016 Susan G. Komen Mid-Missouri Race for the Cure®. The fundraiser takes place on Sunday morning, Oct. 9, in Flat Branch Park in historic downtown Columbia. Register online at www.komenmissouri.org/MidMoRace.
The Komen Mid-Missouri Race raises funds for the local fight against breast cancer, celebrates breast cancer survivors and honors those who have lost their lives to the disease.
The funds raised at the Komen Mid-Missouri Race will directly impact the breast health needs of local women, men and families. Seventy-five percent of the net funds raised by Komen Missouri stays in the local community to fund lifesaving breast cancer screening, breast health education and patient support programs. The remaining 25 percent funds cutting-edge, global breast cancer research.
The Race includes a 5K run/walk and 1-mile fun walk. For more serious runners or those pursuing personal fitness goals, the timed run offers electronic timing and a separate starting corral. Participants can form or join teams in honor or memory of a loved one to make an even greater impact. Those who cannot attend the Race may choose the Sleep In for the Cure option.
The Komen Mid-Missouri Race supports Komen Missouri’s year-round mission of saving lives and ending breast cancer forever. The support of the community is vital to the continued local impact of the Race.
Since 1999, Komen Missouri has invested more than $40 million, raised through year-round events such as the annual Komen Mid-Missouri Race, in lifesaving, local breast health programs and global breast cancer research.
Registration for the 2016 Komen Mid-Missouri Race for the Cure is open at www.komenmissouri.org/MidMoRace. All Race registration fees, fundraising dollars and donations help give strength to the fight against breast cancer.
