DC This Week Supports the Susan G. Komen Global Race for the Cure®

Join the more than 45,000 participants coming together as a living testament to the power of individuals to impact the world. Learn about the many ways you can participate or register now!
Last year, the
Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure ® raised $4.7 million for local education and community outreach programs that work tirelessly to assist vulnerable populations. Thanks to a Susan G. Komen Foundation, wait times for a biopsy at a major cancer center in DC were cut by 17 percent.

Kids for the Cure®
$25.00 - 
You don’t have to be a grown-up to help fight breast cancer. Kids ages 5 - 12 may register as Kids for the Cure. Parents/Guardians: If you are registering to participate, you may add your kids to your own registration instead of registering each of your kids individually. Read more…

Register in Person
Visit our calendar to find upcoming opportunities for you and your teammates to register in-person for the Komen Global Race. Each registrant does NOT have to be present to register, so you may collect registration forms from your friends, family or team members and bring them all at once.

Whether you register as a walker, runner or sleeper, if you’re a breast cancer survivor (and indicate as such on your registration form) you will receive a pink survivor T-shirt, hat and bib along with your Race T-shirt, and will be awarded a special medal on Race Day. You will also be invited to participate in a special honorary ceremony the morning of Race Day. More information for survivors can be found here.

Multiply your impact on the cause by forming a team for the Komen Global Race for the Cure. Bring together friends, family, co-workers, neighbors or club members to join the fight to end breast cancer. Teams can consist of two or more walkers, runners, sleepers or kids. There is no additional fee to start or join a team.

Our Team Captain Guide contains all the information and ideas you’ll need to become one of our biggest and highest fundraising teams. More information for team captains can be found here.

When you register your team, you will be asked to select a division (for example, corporate, friend/family, armed forces, etc.). The top fundraising team in each division will receive special recognition at the Race. Check out the latest standings for each team division.
