How the Komen Tidewater Race for the Cure benefits the community

Grant Graphics.jpg

Have you ever wondered where Komen Tidewater fundraising and donation dollars go? The funds raised from Race for the Cure and our other events provide life-saving breast cancer screening and diagnostics, education, and groundbreaking research to the local Tidewater community and nationally.

When you donate or raise funds, it literally saves a life like Barbara's. 

A sobering fact is that the estimated deaths from breast cancer in the Tidewater area in 2016 are 248 people. This means that each week about 5 families will lose a loved one to breast cancer.

Register for the 2016 Komen Tidewater Race for the Cure or donate today to make a difference in our community.
