Q: What is the cost to Register for the Race?
Please visit the Race Information page to see the different types of registration and fees as well as deadlines. Note: You must register to receive a Race t-shirt and only the first 8,500 participants to pick up their bibs will receive a t-shirt. Your Registration fee helps to cover the cost of operations but personal giving and fundraising is what enables Komen to save lives here locally.
Q: Does the Komen Race for the Cure® require fundraising?
You are not required to fundraise, but we do encourage all participants to fundraise above the entry fee. Just Imagine the IMPACT - If every Race participant raises just $100 in addition to their registration fee, we would bring in an additional $800,000 to support local screening, treatment and educational programs in our community!
Q: Does the money raised stay right here in our community?
Yes! Up to Seventy-five percent of the net income from the Race stays right here in our community to fund vital breast cancer health education and breast cancer screening and treatment programs.
And the remaining Twenty-five percent supports the Komen for the Cure Award and Research Grants Programs, which funds groundbreaking breast cancer research.

Q. What are some ways I can fundraise for my team/my individual goal?

Q: Is my registration fee tax-deductible?
No, your registration fee helps defray the costs of producing the Race and is not considered tax deductable. However, any amount that you choose to donate above the entry fee is tax-deductible.
