This year we were a Gold sponsor for "Komen Race for the Cure®." Seventy-five percent of every dollar raised stayed right here in San Diego County. It was used to cover and support common breast cancer expenses - from mammograms and diagnostics to treatments and financial support. The remaining 25 percent of the funds went to national research. Other than the U.S. government, "Komen for the Cure®" is the largest fundraiser of breast cancer research in the world.
Whether you run, walk or stroll – discover with every step your power to change the world. Join the Susan G. Komen San Diego Race for the Cure® and the movement that started it all. Together, we promise to end breast cancer forever – and help a woman every moment of her struggle until we find a cure. Here's a poster you can post proudly!

Impact. Make One
Breast cancer doesn't take a break for bad economic times. More than ever, we need every dollar to help those women who are unemployed and uninsured. Up to 75 percent of the funds you contribute remain here in San Diego to cover every step of the breast health journey – from education, outreach, mammograms and diagnostics, to surgeries, chemotherapy, radiation and material and financial support like meals, mortgage payments, child care, prosthetics and wigs. The remaining 25 percent of each dollar donated funds national research to discover the causes of breast cancer and, ultimately, its cures. In fact, next to the U.S. government, Susan G. Komen for the Cure is the largest funder of breast cancer research in the world.
