The 19th annual Race for the Cure is Komen Twin Tiers signature event, largest single fundraiser and largest Walk/Run devoted to ending Breast Cancer in the region. The Race for the Cure draws over 3,000 participants and volunteers from throughout our 9 county region (Broome, Chemung, Schuyler, Steuben, Tioga, & Tompkins counties in New York, and Bradford, Potter, and Tioga counties in PA. Proceeds from past races have enabled Komen Twin Tiers to distribute over $1.3 million (75% net proceeds) to LOCAL grantees since 2000. The remaining 25% (net proceeds) funds global research that is finding the cures to breast cancer.
With 1 in 8 women diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, and with a significant number of uninsured and under-insured women living the the Twin Tires, these local community grants are critical to the health and welfare of the families in our nine county region.
