Q: What is the cost to Register for the Race?
Note: You must register to receive a Race 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: What time does each Race start?
Q: Why did you schedule the Race on Yom Kippur?
We regret that the Komen Charlotte Race for the Cure falls on Yom Kippur in 2014. As you know, the Charlotte Race occurs every year on the first Saturday in October. This year, unfortunately, that means it coincides with this sacred holiday and most of our Jewish friends and supporters will be unable to participate. We wish you a soft fast and blessed holiday. We hope to see you at the Race in 2015 and at other Komen events. Thank you for your understanding.
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.
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: Where do I send donations?
Or mail to:
Komen Charlotte Race for the Cure
2316 Randolph Road
Charlotte, NC 28207
*For donations on behalf of an individual participant or a team, please include that information with your check.
Q: Is there a deadline for fundraising?
All donations on your behalf that are received by October 31, 2014 will be credited to your fundraising total.
Q. What are some ways I can fundraise for my team/my individual goal?
We have plenty of ideas in our Team Captain Toolkit!
Q: Is my registration fee tax-deductible?
No, your registration fee helps defray the costs of producing the Race and is not considered tax-deductible. However, any amount that you choose to donate above the entry fee is tax-deductible.
