Imagine the Impact of Fundraising
How does a 5K Race make a huge impact on the global movement to end breast cancer forever?
You don’t need to be a fundraising expert to be successful at it – you just need the desire to stand up to breast cancer and make a difference. Thanks to people like you, in 2013 the Komen Charlotte Affiliate was able to fund nearly $1.2 Million for education, screening and treatment services in Mecklenburg County and the 12 surrounding counties.

Q: Am I required to fundraise? No, but we do encourage all participants to fundraise. Your entry fee gets us to the start line, but your fundraising will get us to the cures!
Q: Does the money raised stay right here in our community? Yes! Up to 75% of the net income from the Race stays right here in our community to fund community health grants. The remaining 25% supports National Research Grants.
