THE IMPACT OF YOUR PARTICIPATION

“For more than three decades, Susan G. Komen has been seeking cures and helping low-income, uninsured and under-served women have access to life-saving breast cancer screenings and treatment services. That mission has never changed,” said Maureen Keenan Meldrum, chair, Susan G. Komen Detroit Race for the Cure®. “Here in metro Detroit, since 1992, the Komen Detroit Race has raised and invested over $23 million to help end breast cancer. We’re grateful for the continued support of metro Detroiters and look forward to seeing everyone on May 18 as we unite as a community to help save lives and end breast cancer.”

Each year, the Race awards 75 percent of the net proceeds to breast cancer screening, treatment support and education programs for medically underserved people in Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties. The remaining 25 percent funds breast cancer research grants awarded through Susan G. Komen.

Thanks to a generous crowd of 30,000, including 1,200 volunteers, 500 teams and 100 sponsors and underwriters, the 2012 Komen Detroit Race for the Cure® awarded more than $1.55 million to local community programs as a result of $2.3 million raised. In addition, $317,300 was contributed to Komen’s Award and Research Grant Program, benefitting scientists committed to ending breast cancer.

The Karmanos Cancer Institute has served as the local presenting sponsor of the Komen Detroit Race for the Cure® since its inception in 1992.
