Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation presents the Race for the Cure on May 20, 2006 at the Arcadia Festival Site in downtown Kalamazoo. Visit the site to volunteer, register or to donate.
The Komen Southwest Michigan Race is one of over 112 Komen Race for the Cure Events held in either the US or overseas. Each Race and affiliate keeps 75% of the money they raise to fund local programs for local women and their families. All Komen Race for the Cure events include a 5K run and a 5K Walk and most have special Survivor Recognition ceremonies to honor the many breast cancer survivors who come out to participate.
Participants in the Komen Southwest Michigan Race for the Cure® include individual runners and walkers along with many teams of family members, co-workers, neighbors, friends and even breast cancer survivor support groups.
