Susan G. Komen®, the world’s leading breast cancer organization, today announced that it will hold a Race for the Cure in Downtown Toledo this fall on Sunday, September 25, 2022. The Race will be held in Downtown Toledo and proceeds will advance Komen’s mission, fund groundbreaking research, and provide direct support to people facing breast cancer.
“We are excited to welcome Race participants in person this year and grateful for the opportunity to provide a community for anyone who has been impacted by breast cancer. Whether you are in treatment, celebrating survivorship, or a family member, friend or loved one, we hope you will join us in September and be part of our collective efforts to end breast cancer forever,” said Gretchen Awad, Executive Director of Northwest Ohio at Susan G. Komen.
All members of the breast cancer community honoring friends, family and anyone who has been impacted by the disease are encouraged to participate. The Race for the Cure is about making an impact toward curing breast cancer and the funds raised through registrations, participant fundraising, and sponsorships will give more individuals who have been impacted by the disease access to resources and the support they need now.
The Power of ONE Week – a week’s worth of events to honor those who have been impacted by breast cancer – will precede the Race from September 19 – 24, 2022. A schedule of in-person and virtual events and additional details will be announced soon.
