Susan G. Komen®, the world’s leading breast cancer organization, today announced that it will hold its 30th Annual Columbus Race for the Cure in downtown Columbus on Saturday, May 14, 2022. The Columbus race will be held at a new location at North Bank Park at 311 W. Long Street, Columbus, OH 43215.

“We are excited to welcome back Columbus Race for the Cure participants in person this year for the first time since 2019 and grateful for the opportunity to provide a community for anyone who has been impacted by breast cancer,” said Alyssa Petrella, Executive Director of Central Ohio at Susan G. Komen. “Whether you are in treatment, celebrating survivorship, or a family member, friend or loved one, we hope you will join us in May and be part of our collective efforts to end breast cancer forever.”

This event is open all the members of our breast cancer community honoring friends, family and anyone who has been impacted by the disease.  The Race for the Cure is about making strides toward curing breast cancer and the funds raised through registrations and sponsorships will give more individuals who have been impacted by the disease access to resources and the support they need now. This year’s race features a new start line and course will also be underway.  Route and event day details can be found at

The 30th Annual Columbus Race for the Cure will kick off with The Power of ONE Week – a week’s worth of events to honor those who have been impacted by breast cancer – starting Sunday, May 8 and running through Friday, May 13. A schedule of in-person and virtual events and additional details will be announced soon.
