Announcing Couch to 5K Training Opportunity!!!!
Thanks to a new partnership with the Nashville Running Company, we are offering a free Couch to 5K training to prepare you for the 2014 Race for the Cure! Training will begin in August and is limited to the first 25 people to register directly with NRC. You must also be registered for the Race for the Cure to be eligible. The Couch-to-5K training program will be led by NRC Racing Team Member, Kris Rehm, a breast cancer survivor who recently completed treatment. Join her as she gets back in shape to support an amazing cause. Our training plan is built especially for those of you who have never run before or are looking to dust off your sneakers after a long hiatus!

The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series, the largest series of 5K runs/fitness walks in the world, raises significant funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer, celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease. Since its inception in 1983, the Komen Race for the Cure® series has grown from one local Race with 800 participants to a global series of more than 120 Races with more than 1 million people.
Up to 75 percent of the funds raised at the Komen Greater Nashville Race for the Cure® remains here in our 11-county service area to provide screenings, treatment, services and education for uninsured or underinsured women. The remaining 25 percent goes to fund international, ground-breaking research to discover the causes of breast cancer and, ultimately, its cures.
Why we need your support:
Every step counts! Your donation provides women and men in Nashville and our 11-county area with services that have literally saved lives. You help make the following programs possible:
- Free mammograms and diagnostics
- Medical treatment for qualified breast cancer patients who cannot afford care, including surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation
- Support services including support groups, assistance with finding financial resources, prescription refills and transportation to medical appointments
- Housing for patients during treatment
- Education about the warning signs of breast cancer, methods of early detection and the latest treatment options
- Cutting-edge research to find a cure for breast cancer
