Why is this event important?
Imagine a world without breast cancer. You can help make that a reality. The Race for the Cure raises funds for the local Susan G. Komen Foundation, which supports early detection of breast cancer, its treatment and ongoing research.
Our thanks to Susan G. Komen for the Cure for providing women in our community access to the care and resources related to breast health and breast cancer. Komen funds up to 8,000 mammograms for uninsured and underinsured women in Oregon annually.
