2012 Race Information
Local Dollars, Local Impact
Seventy-five percent of the net money raised by the Komen St. Louis Affiliate stays in the St. Louis area to fund life-saving breast health screening, treatment, education and support programs to those who might not otherwise have access. The remaining 25 percent funds vital breast cancer research on the national level, including research being done in St. Louis.
Fundraising for the Cure
By registering for the Race, participants are automatically enrolled in the Fundraising for the Cure program, which allows individuals to raise money that will directly impact the St. Louis community. The easy online site provides each participant his/her own fundraising web page that can be personalized. Friends, family and supporters can go to the participant’s page to make donations in support of his/her efforts to find the cures for breast cancer.
Each Race participant is challenged to raise $100 by simply asking ten friends to donate $10. If all St. Louis Race participants met this Power of Ten challenge, they would raise more than $6 million to fund live-saving breast health programs and vital breast cancer research.
A Tribute to Breast Cancer Survivors
Breast cancer survivors are the inspiration behind the Komen St. Louis Race for the Cure. Registered breast cancer survivors will receive a pink T-shirt and complimentary cap provided by Zeta Tau Alpha and Bank of America, sponsors of the Breast Cancer Survivor Recognition Program. In addition, breast cancer survivors can meet on Race day at the Schnucks Survivor Pavilion and enjoy complimentary breakfast items.
