Come join us for the 15th Annual Susan G. Komen Northwest NC Race for the Cure® at our new location and date! The Susan G. Komen Northwest NC Race for the Cure® will be held in Downtown Winston-Salem with pre- and post-Race celebrations at the BB&T Ballpark.

For the past 14 years, Susan G. Komen® Northwest NC has been hosting the annual Susan G. Komen® Race for the Cure.  For 14 years it was held in the same place and in the same month, but this is a big year.  This will be year 15 of our iconic Race, and we’ve got some very exciting news.

This year, the Susan G. Komen® Northwest NC Race will be held on Sept. 27, 2014, at the BB&T Ball Park in Winston-Salem.  The change was spurred by the hope of kicking off Breast Cancer Awareness Month on the right foot.

Race is more than just a 5k walk and run…it’s a celebration of breast cancer survivors, fighters, co-survivors, pre-vivors (BRCA positive men and women) and dedicated advocators who want to see the world rid of breast cancer.  However, registering for the Race is only half the battle.  Komen Northwest NC takes donations throughout the year and from Race and uses them for a variety of reasons, such as community grants and to help provide underprivileged women receive education materials, proper treatment and preventative care.

For more information and to register for the Race, go to our website: www.komennorthwestnc.org/

So what does this mean for you?  It means you need to fundraise.

Fundraising is so important and every penny helps.  Don’t be afraid to go door-to-door or to host dinner party for friends and family – you can have each person pay for a plate of food, and then take a portion of that for a donation. For more unique and creative fundraising ideas, visit 101Fundraising Ideas.

When you decide to register for Race, remember that this is more than just a celebration of the strong and courageous individuals who have overcome breast cancer.  It’s more than just a remembrance of those who bravely fought cancer but lost their battle.  Race is a beacon of hope that radiates throughout the nation that boldly states, “We envision a world without breast cancer, and we won’t stop until we can make it happen.”

Currently, Race registration is $25 for adult non-timed and $30 for adult timed racers.  Starting April 1, registration prices go up to $30-$35.  To register for Race or to activate a team from last year, click here.
