Why do you Race

Suzy and Nancy
Susan G. Komen with 
her sister Nancy Brinker

Susan G. Komen, fondly remembered by her loved ones as Suzy, lost her life to breast cancer in 1980. She was just 36 years old. Her sister promised her that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. Since that day, Susan G. Komen® has become the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and advocates and the world's largest nonprofit source of funding for the fight against breast cancer. We will not stop until we fulfill that promise. 

Each of us has a story and many of those who Race, walk or volunteer, do so in honor of a breast cancer survivor who they love and support, or in remembrance of a loved one they lost to this devastating disease. We want YOU to tell us why you Race and we'll share your story on our Tribute Wall at the Race for the Cure! Submit a picture of your loved one and a short description to Holly at, or bring your photo with you to the Race on April 9. 

*We can not guarantee that all photos will be returned. We suggest submitting a photo that has a copy.
