Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure

On Race day, we come together at Seattle Center not only to have fun, but to raise funds to find cures for the most aggressive breast cancers and improve outcomes for those who face barriers to care.

Race for the Cure starts at 8 a.m.

Hundreds of pink-clad breast cancer survivors take part in the Survivor Parade, an inspiring Race tradition. Following the parade are the 5K run and walk events, including a kids’ run and the Paws for the Cure dog walk.

Why We Race

Komen’s new bold goal is to reduce the number of breast cancer deaths by 50 percent in the next decade. When you fundraise for Race, together we progress toward that goal by accelerating lifesaving research, along with critical screenings and patient resources for those who don’t have access to the services they need. With your support, we can reach our vision of a world without breast cancer.

Donate or volunteer

Even if you can’t walk or run, you can support the breast cancer fight by making a general donation or by giving through a participant or team. Visit www.komenpugetsound.org to find out how. If you are looking for volunteer opportunities on or before Race day, email volunteer@pskomen.org.
