About the Race

The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series is the world’s largest and most successful education and fundraising event for breast cancer ever created.

The series of 5K runs and fitness walks raises significant funds and awareness for the breast cancer movement, celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease. Since it started in 1983, the Komen Race for the Cure Series has grown from one Race with 800 people in Dallas to a global series of more than 150 Races with nearly 1 million people participating on four continents.

The Komen Race Series welcomes people of all ages and fitness levels, from walkers to elite runners.

Komen Nevada’s Race for the Cure

Susan G. Komen Nevada holds two Races a year…the Las Vegas Race for the Cure in May and the Reno Race for the Cure in October.



Local Impact

Thanks to events like the Las Vegas Race for the Cure and the Reno Race for the Cure, Komen Nevada has invested over $11.2 million into the community to fund local programs offering breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment services, and more than $3 million toward international breast cancer research. But, there is still work to be done, and we need your help. Your donations and fundraising dollars will help us get to the finish line.
