WHY WE RACE
The Susan G. Komen Central and South Jersey Race for the Cure raises significant funds and awareness for the breast cancer movement, celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease.
Up to 75% of the net income stays in our community to help fund local life-saving programs offering breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment. The remaining 25% of the net income supports research through the Susan G. Komen® Grants Program to help find the cures.
