The Komen Greater Fort Worth Race for the Cure® is an annual 1K and 5K fundraising walk/run event held at Ridgmar Mall in Fort Worth. The event is a co-ed race and great fun for the entire family.The 2014 Race is in its 22nd year and is part of a national 5K series sponsored by Susan G. Komen. The goal of the event is to raise funds, heighten awareness and educate people about breast health as well as to recognize and celebrate breast cancer survivorship.
Local Presenting Sponsor:
Located at the heart of it all, Survivors, be sure and visit the Texas Health Resources Survivor Pavilion on Race Day and enjoy breakfast, gifts, a nice place to rest and even luxury "facilities" exclusively for you! This year, we'll have a special Survivor Parade before the Awards Ceremony. Once you register, watch your email for details when we get closer to the Race!
Seventy-five percent of the net income for the Komen Greater Fort Worth Race stays in the local community to fund breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment projects. The remaining twenty-five percent helps fund groundbreaking breast cancer research.
The Race is the largest fundraising event for local breast cancer screening, treatment, education and research in the Greater Fort Worth Area. Our service area includes Tarrant, Parker, Johnson and Hood counties. Komen Greater Fort Worth recently invested $900,000 into our community for these vital services.
We hope that you will join us and encourage your friends, family and co-workers to register as well. This is a great time to rally behind a breast cancer patient and help support someone who has battled the disease.
