The event raises significant funds and awareness for breast health programs, celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease. This Race is unique in the fact that 100% of the net proceeds are allocated to our mission: to save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer. 75% of the net income stays in our community to help fund local programs offering breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment. The remaining 25% of the net income supports the Susan G. Komen® Research Grants Program, which provided The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Duke University, and Wake Forest University nearly $2.2 million in research grants this year.
