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.
