One Race.  One mission: No one should die from breast cancer.

An estimated one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.

Susan G. Komen Greater New York City is working toward a goal of a world without breast cancer.

Achieving that goal begins with the Race for the Cure, the ultimate grassroots celebration of hope for the future, honoring survivors and thrivers, and remembering those who have passed from the disease.

Komen Greater NYC funds many community-based breast health screening, treatment, education, and support service programs. Since 1990, Komen Greater NYC has provided over $55 million in funding for local breast health programs and breast cancer research to find the cures.

Last year’s Komen Greater NYC Race for the Cure attracted over 12,000 people including nearly 1,000 survivors.

For more information about Sunday’s Race for the Cure, check out their website.

CBS2 is a proud sponsor of the Race For The Cure.
